Employment Status - Uber Must Take its Case to the Court of Appeal

After the Employment Appeal Tribunal upheld the decision of the Employment Tribunal that Uber drivers are workers, rather than being self-employed, and thus have the right to be paid the National Minimum Wage or the National Living Wage and to receive holiday pay (Uber B.V. and Others v Aslam and Others), Uber made clear its intention to appeal and requested that the case be 'fast-tracked' to the Supreme Court.

Permission has been refused, however, and Uber must pursue its appeal in the Court of Appeal.
