Delivery jobs for two gig economy giants are being traded to alleged illegal immigrants in a black market, a Sunday Times investigation has revealed.
Workers at Deliveroo and Uber Eats who have passed vetting checks are offering up their jobs online. Whistleblowers claim that migrants who are in Britain illegally are renting these jobs without facing criminal record, insurance, right-to-work or passport checks.
The buyers pay up to £100 a week for accounts, giving them the right to deliver food. A legitimate rider in northwest London said he believed dozens of accounts in his area were being rented out.
