Uber drivers are workers and not self-employed contractors – this decision was reached by the Employment Appeal Tribunal on Friday and agreed with the previous Employment Tribunal decision.
So what next? Well it is widely anticipated that Uber will appeal to the Supreme Court and that this case may be considered at the same time as the Pimlico Plumbers case.
If you have contractors working for you on a regular basis, now would be a great time to review the contractual arrangements between you and seek to ensure you don’t fall foul of the same issues as these two cases. Give us a call today!
