Following the recent successes of Cloisters barristers in employment tribunal cases such as Citysprint and Boxer v Excel Group, Schona Jolly QC has been instructed by Leigh Day to represent Deliveroo drivers who are taking legal action against the delivery firm. The claims raise more interesting issues on employment status against the food delivery company, including age discrimination claims against its younger drivers under 18.

The case is in its early stages but has attracted significant media coverage here.
