Uber drivers win key employment case


Fri, 28 Oct 2016

Uber drivers in the UK have won an employment tribunal case which ruled they are workers rather than self-employed. The decision means drivers will be entitled to holiday pay, paid rest breaks and the National Minimum Wage. The GMB union described the ruling concerning the ride-hailing app as a "monumental victory" for some 30,000 drivers. Uber said it would appeal against the decision made by the London tribunal.
