As A Result Of The New Spanish Regulation Food Delivery Companies Are Being Scrutinized

MADRID (AP) — A new legislation in Spain has gone into effect that requires food delivery companies to hire delivery riders and drivers as employees rather than independent contractors.
The Spanish Trade Union Confederation said the so-called Riders Law, which went into effect on Thursday, will “put an stop to the labor fraud that workers in this sector have experienced for far too long,” but that compliance should be ensured through monitoring, evaluation, and reporting by the labor ministry and inspectors.
App-based food delivery services must also provide up information about how algorithms and artificial intelligence systems work in assigning tasks and evaluating performance, according to legislation passed in May.
The law, according to businesses, threatens a 700-million-euro ($851-million) economy in Spain.
