Uber appeals against drivers' rights to pay and holiday
A long-running case over the status of Uber drivers will be heard in the Court of Appeal on Tuesday and Wednesday. If classified as workers, Uber drivers are entitled to paid holiday and the minimum wage. The tribunal upheld its original decision that any Uber driver who had the Uber app switched on was working for the company under a "Worker" contract. Mr Farrar, who is branch chair of the IWGB United Private Hire Drivers branch, said mini-cab drivers were still waiting for justice, two years after the tribunal ruling. "Almost all taxi and private hire drivers have been self-employed for decades, long before our app existed. We believe the Employment Appeal Tribunal last year fundamentally misunderstood how we operate," an Uber spokesperson said.
