Uber drivers are workers

November 21, 2016

 

 An employment tribunal has held that Uber drivers are workers for the purposes of the Employment Rights Act 1996, the National Minimum Wage Act 1998 and the Working Time Regulations 1998. Uber's case was that it is simply a technology platform which puts drivers in touch with passengers and that it is in no way a provider of taxi services. Uber had complex contractual documentation that purported to underpin the relationships between it, drivers and passengers. The tribunal decided that the contractual documentation did not correspond with reality and, accordingly, disregarded it.
