The British Supreme Court ruled that Uber, which provides taxi service via the smartphone app, must show all its drivers as employees of the company.
The Supreme Court announced its decision on the lawsuit filed by two Uber drivers. In the decision, it was stated that Uber drivers cannot be considered self-employed, they should be identified as employees of the company.
James Farrar and Yassen Aslam, two drivers serving in Uber vehicles in the UK, filed a lawsuit against the company in October 2016 to protect their rights.
Uber, on the other hand, filed an appeal in the UK after losing the lawsuit on employee rights three times. The decision of the British Supreme Court is important as it is final and binding.
