NYC law provides pay and workplace protections for delivery workers. If you do restaurant deliveries for an app, you have rights regardless of your immigration status.

Your rights are:

  • Apps must give you a free insulated food delivery bag after 6 deliveries.
  • You can limit how far you will go from restaurants and pick which bridges or tunnels you will use.
  • Apps cannot offer you trips outside the limits you set. You have the right to change your limits.
  • Better access to restaurant bathrooms when you pick up orders.
  • More information about your pay
  • Payment at least once a week
  • Minimum pay rate. This minimum will increase on April 1 each year.
  • Apps must tell you route details before you accept a delivery.
