Deliveroo announces departure from Spanish market

Food delivery service Deliveroo has announced it is making plans to leave the Spanish market, following on from a Government announcement that workers in the gig economy must be considered employees.

Management at the app company said the changes would require significant investment that could impact the economic viability in the long term.

Negotiations with unions are expected to begin next month, with operations winding up in October.

Workers for the company are expected to remain self employed until the operation comes to a close.
