UBER – Latest Case

Uber’s Application to take its Appeal straight to the Supreme Court, thereby bypassing the Court of Appeal, has been refused.

This means that the Appeal against the decision that Uber drivers are “workers” (rather than self-employed contractors) and entitled to the rights associated with that status (e.g. holiday pay) will now be heard by the Court of Appeal some time in 2018.

In February the Supreme Court is going to hear an Appeal in the case of Pimlico Plumbers.  That will be an opportunity to review the whole question of worker status.
