    Default Can you hire Delivery Drivers as Independent Contractors?

    Is it possible to do in the UK and the EU, what businesses like postmates and instacart are doing in the US by solely paying drivers commission and no minimum wage?

    Are there many legal hurdles behind hiring drivers and having them pay for their own insurance and not paying them a wage?

    What about IR35 law, how does it apply to delivery drivers and contractors?


    Thank you

    Trying to out-Yodel Yodel then?

    Are you expecting your drivers to pay you for the privilege of working for you?

    We would have drivers keep 80% of each order. We would pay them at the end of every week and we would also reimburse them for fuel and other delivery-related expenses.

    Yodel chucked a 600 squid laptop over the fence.
