Uber’s latest attempt to avoid their drivers having ‘worker’ status and thus minimum protections for national minimum wage and paid holiday has failed yet again – but only just.
On appeal to the Court of Appeal, after losing at ET and EAT levels, Uber has been defeated but only by a majority basis of two to one.
So, has the dragon of minimum driver protection at Uber been slain for good?
Possibly not – Uber have been given permission to appeal to the Supreme Court. The question is whether Uber now have the bottle to take it to the very Supreme Court that polished off ET fees? We suspect that if they do, they may regret it!
