Uber loses in the Supreme Court – drivers are ‘workers’ - 19/02/2021

The Supreme Court handed down its landmark decision today in the Uber v Aslam case. The Supreme Court dismissed Uber’s appeal, affirming the 2018 Court of Appeal decision that Uber drivers should be classed as ‘workers’ and not independent contractors. This ruling means that Uber drivers will be entitled to basic rights such as statutory holiday and sick pay. This decision has a wider impact on the employment status of those working in the gig economy. You can read the judgment here and the press summary here.
