Uber loses landmark case over workers rights

with No Comments

Uber has lost a landmark case over worker rights, entitling UK drivers to minimum wage and sick leave. The Court of Appeal upheld a 2016 ruling, refuting the ride-hailing app’s claim that its drivers are self-employed. Earlier this week, the government said that it would look into workplace policies to help preserve gig economy jobs. Meanwhile, Uber and other private taxi companies will no longer be exempt from paying London’s congestion charge, as Mayor Sadiq Khan pushes to cut down on the city’s air pollution.
