Our Uber Driver Claims are based on the following information:
- On 19th February 2021, the Supreme Court confirmed that Uber drivers are legally classed as ‘workers’ and not self-employed contractors. The Supreme Court also ordered Uber to abide by this classification and treat them as such. Each ’employee’ of Uber is officially working from the time they log on to the app, until they log off, including the time typically spent waiting for jobs to become available.
As a result, drivers are entitled to basic employment rights including:
- The minimum wage for their full working day (not the number of customers obtained)
- 6 weeks paid annual leave per year
- Unlawful deductions from wages
- Right to be properly consulted on regulatory changes
- Other employment rights.
