Case re Uber and definition of "workers" - Uber v Aslam & others [CA] 19.12.18 (unreported)
The Court of Appeal in London has refused an appeal by the Uber company against the decision that their drivers are "workers" within the meaning of the Working Time and Minimum Wage Regulations, and the Employment Protection Act 1996. By a majority the court affirmed the employment tribunal and Employment Appeal Tribunal rulings, on preliminary issues in claims by Uber drivers for holiday pay and underpayment of wages, that the drivers were workers, employed by Uber London Ltd and not self-employed as maintained by Uber.Link to Journal Online
