Uber drivers to be regarded as workers not self-employed - Supreme Court

Uber drivers must be treated as workers rather than self-employed, the UK's Supreme Court has ruled.

The decision could mean that thousands of Uber drivers are entitled to a minimum salary and vacation pay, Daily Times reports.

The ruling could leave a heavy compensation bill facing the ride-hailing app, and have wider implications for the gig economy.

The ruling focused on a small number of drivers, Uber said, and it has since made changes to its business.

In a long-running legal battle, after losing three previous rounds, Uber appealed to the Supreme Court.


In several countries, Uber is being challenged by its drivers over whether they should be classified as workers or self-employed.
