The drivers were to be regarded as employees, established a Labour court in London and thus confirmed a decision from October 2016. Two uber-drivers had filed a lawsuit against Uber. The service provider appealed against verdict, and Labour Court in London now rejected it. The US company is expected to appeal again.
One of plaintiffs had said that uber-drivers were "chained to work" because of high costs. There are drivers who slept in car, and those who run 90 hours a week to come home with a credit that matches minimum wage. On or hand, vast majority of drivers argued that ir "freedom" and ir own lord wanted to be. The company would have a free choice and could determine working time and working hours.Verdict could have implications for more than 100,000 people
The verdict could have a major impact on so-called gig economy, in which British workers are able to work ir way through work orders and have little rights and safeguards. In sector, more than 100,000 people work in UK. For uber-driving according to company information alone in British capital 40,000 drivers, 3.5 million people should use uber-app re.
