The Supreme Court has ruled that Uber drivers are to be considered workers and not self-employed contractors. Uber drivers are therefore entitled to workers’ rights, including the National Minimum Wage and holiday pay.
Following the ruling, Uber agreed to pay its drivers the correct wage going forward, but this does not rectify its failure to do so previously. Many current and former Uber drivers could still be left short and due thousands of pounds in unpaid wages and holiday pay.
Up to 40,000 Uber drivers in the UK may be affected by this case, and if you have been an Uber driver at any point since 1 July 2015, you could be owed money.
The Supreme Court decision does not mean that you will automatically get historic unpaid holiday pay and/or National Minimum Wage from Uber. You must make a claim to recover these sums.
