The Employment Tribunal decision on the status of Uber drivers

In this weeks' episode I follow up from Episode 61 when I brought you the details of a claim being considered in the London Central Employment Tribunal. The Judgement has been published and the outcome is that the Uber drivers in this case have been classified as workers.

In this episode I will cover:

  • Details about the case;
  • The differences in employment status;
  • What it means for the Uber drivers to be considered as workers;
  • The rights workers have;
  • What factors the Tribunal considered relevant in this case;
  • The potential wider impact of this case and why it is not over yet.

Action Points

  1. If you have 'self-employed' persons or consultants working for you, review the situation to ensure it is still a self-employed relationship;
  2. Seek advice if you are not sure about the legal status of the relationship;
  3. Sign up for my newsletter to ensure you get an update when the case is appealed;
  4. Give me a call if you want to talk through 023 8098 2006 or 01983 897003
