  • BBC News published this video item, entitled “Landmark ruling says Uber drivers are employees with right to minimum wage and sick pay – BBC News” – below is their description.

    The UK Supreme Court has ruled that Uber drivers must be treated as workers rather than self-employed , a decision which means they could be entitled to a minimum wage and holiday pay.

    The decision marks the end of a five-year legal battle. Uber had argued that 40,000 drivers were self-employed and in effect running their own businesses. The court found that they were employees and Uber must pay them the benefits workers are entitled to.

    The case is likely to have very significant implications for many other workers in the UK.
