EAT rules against Uber in worker status case - Uber loses court appeal against drivers' rights
Taxi firm Uber has lost an appeal against a ruling that its drivers should be classed as workers rather than self-employed. Last year a tribunal ruled drivers James Farrar and Yaseen Aslam were Uber staff and entitled to holiday pay, paid rest breaks and the minimum wage. Uber appealed, arguing its drivers were self employed and were under no obligation to use its booking app. Uber said it would appeal against this latest ruling, too.Link to EAT decision
