Tribunal Rules That Uber Drivers Are Not Self Employed

1 November 2016

An Employment Tribunal in London has dismissed ride sharing company Uber's argument that its drivers are self-employed contractors, ruling instead that drivers are workers entitled to the National Minimum Wage, sick pay, holidays, breaks during the working day and pension contributions.

The ruling, which is expected to be appealed, will have significant implications on the 'Gig Economy' and comes only one week after the announcement of a HMRC Task Force who will look into companies who are incorrectly classing parts of their workforce as self employed.
