  • Channel 4 News published this video item, entitled “Uber drivers must be treated as workers not self-employed contractors, Supreme Court rules” – below is their description.

    The Supreme Court has ruled that Uber drivers must be treated as workers, and not self-employed contractors – in a ruling which could have major implications for the gig economy.

    Thousands of drivers could now be entitled to compensation, with access to the minimum wage and holiday pay.

    Union leaders called it a victory for “common decency”, while Uber insisted the judgment only applied to a small number of drivers, and it had since made significant changes to its business model.
