    Great business idea but is this a sign they’re in trouble?

    Hope the company survives.

      “is this a sign they’re in trouble?”

      Hopefully. That’s the only non scummy reason for doing this. I trust all the management took substantial pay decreases as well?

    Deliveroo couriers are by and large wreckless in traffic – I assume they are asked to meet deadlines for salary. This will presumably spell worse of the same.

    Not sorry to see the company pack it in if it’s not viable – better that than risk employee safety or pay unfairly low wages.

    They offered them alternatives at a lower wage apparently. This would be in breach of employment law

    http://www.citizensinformation.ie/en/employment/unemployment_and_redundancy/redundancy/redundancy_procedures.html

    “As with any dismissal, an employer must act reasonably when dismissing an employee in a redundancy situation. This requires prior consultation with you before the decision is made. In addition, your employer should consider all options including possible alternatives.

    If your employer makes you a reasonable offer of alternative work, and you refuse it, you may lose your entitlement to a redundancy payment. Generally speaking, alternatives which involve a loss of status or worsening of the terms and conditions of your employment would not be considered reasonable. Similarly, you may be justified in refusing an offer that involves you travelling an unreasonable distance to work.”

      They probably are. It’s the new thing. Take people on as “independent contractors” or outsource your hiring. All of the benefit of their labour with half the cost and responsibility. Whatever about their rights. Sure life is all about selling for your labour for extortionately low rates so a millionaire makes more money.

    Friday 16th October?

    That can’t be right, surely?

    16th October is a Sunday, for a start and why are they advertising this so far in advance?

    And who’s going to deliver the food in the meantime?

    I’ve never used such services, but have considered working for them ?? Now maybe a Deffo & bring them down from within & get the Riders unionised & get the Bike Repair Shops & Buggeroo Deliveroo ??
