Uber loses landmark appeal concerning workers classification

10 November 2017

Taxi firm Uber has lost its appeal against the ruling that its contractors should be classed as workers instead of self-employed. The ruling may have a huge impact on the gig economy as many wrongly classified self-employed contractors can ask for compensation for workers’ rights they should have received.

Uber state that they will appeal to the supreme court.
