Instacart is one of the world’s largest online grocery services.
This case alleges that Instacart breached employment laws by misclassifying full-service shoppers as independent contractors and failing to pay them for their minimum employment standards, including minimum wage, since 2015.
The court will decide at a late date if the case will proceed as a class action.
The case seeks to represent all current and former Instacart full-service shoppers in Canada who have performed shopping and delivery services for Instacart since July 2015.
