Hermes is to face a legal challenge from the GMB union over self-employed status of its couriers.
The case is on behalf of eight Hermes couriers. The union said that the couriers are identified by the company as self-employed, which means they do not receive holiday pay or the national living wage. It argues that the couriers should be regarded as employees.
Logistics Manager approached Hermes for a statement, but was informed the company would not be commenting on the legal challenge.
