Uber loses landmark UK battle as Supreme Court rules drivers are workers
Uber company lost a landmark battle at the United Kingdom’s Supreme court, which ruled that its drivers are workers entitled to rights such as the minimum wage. This is one of the most significant decisions in employment cases that has been heard for decades. The Supreme Court ruled in favour of 35 Uber drivers who first brought the case in 2016, arguing that they were not self-employed because Uber controlled much of their work, allocating their customers and dictating their fares.
The ruling grants the drivers the right to holiday pay as well as the United Kingdoms’ minimum wage and imposes a duty on Uber to set up a workplace pension scheme. A UK employment tribunal will now assess how much compensation the drivers are entitled to, and the ruling opens the way for other Uber drivers to sue the company.
