Today’s headline story: Glovo to be fined another $62 mln for labour violations in Spain, Reuters reports

Delivery Hero-owned Glovo appear to have been dealt another huge blow according to reports by Reuters.
 
The news agency says it is aware of Glovo being fined an additional 62 million US dollars thanks to a “source with knowledge of the matter”.
Reuters adds that Glovo will appeal the penalty. The company has also reportedly claimed that the fine it has been administered concerns a control period that pre-dates the legislation under which it is being punished.
Back in September 2022, Glovo was fined $78m in Spain due to labour law breaches concerning riders who were unlawfully self employed instead of having a full work contract.
