Uber has misplaced its battle within the Supreme Court over drivers’ rights – a call that would have far-reaching implications for hundreds of thousands of individuals within the gig economic system.
“Nigel Mackay, a partner in the employment team at law firm Leigh Day, which represented some of the Uber drivers involved in the case, said:”Already an employment tribunal, the Employment Appeal Tribunal and the Court of Appeal have dominated that Uber drivers are entitled to staff’ rights, and now the Supreme Court has come to the identical conclusion.
“The Supreme Court has upheld the decision of three previous courts, backing up what GMB has said all along; Uber drivers are workers and entitled to breaks, holiday pay and minimum wage.”
