Uber Drivers Are Workers, NOT Independent Contractors

The Court of Appeal has upheld, by a majority, both the EAT’s and ET’s decisions that two Uber drivers are workers. The drivers brought test cases against the company and as workers are therefore entitled to holiday pay and to be paid at least the National Minimum Wage while working. However, this is not the final word as it is reported that Uber has been granted permission to appeal to the Supreme Court.
