Food delivery operator Deliveroo is the latest company accused of mistreating workers as the retail workers' union launches a campaign to get young people talking about their rights at work.

Deliveroo is threatening to terminate the employment of some of its delivery riders after misplacing their contracts, the ABC reports. The company is asking delivery riders to either sign new contracts or to find and produce their old agreements before Friday (July 20).

SBS News has reached out to Deliveroo for comment.

It comes a day after cosmetics company Lush admitted it may have underpaid up to 5000 former and current staff as much as $2 million, and as Foodora - one of Deliveroo’s competitors - defends lawsuits alleging worker exploitation.
