Union chases Foodora, ombudsman drops case

The Fair Work Ombudsman has announced it will not pursue its case against embattled delivery service Foodora over workers' rights - but the union won't let up.

The union representing Foodora riders is expected to continue legal action even after the Fair Work Ombudsman dropped its case against the collapsing company.

The Fair Work Ombudsman took the food delivery service to the Federal Court in June alleging riders were given agreements that breached "sham contracting laws".

Foodora went into administration in August and the ombudsman, on Monday, said it would no longer pursue legal action.

But the Transport Workers Union vowed to keep fighting after a rider was allegedly dismissed unfairly.

The union's secretary accused the government of "startling inaction".

The case is expected to be heard at the Fair Work Commission later this month in Sydney.
