Uber Appeal to be Heard by Court of Appeal
Thursday 7th December 2017
In our Legal Employment Update dated 24 November 2017, we reported that Uber had appealed directly to the Supreme Court against the Employment Appeal Tribunal finding in Uber BV and Others v Aslam and Others that its drivers are workers and therefore qualify for entitlements such as the National Minimum Wage and paid annual leave.
The Supreme Court has refused Uber’s application for the appeal to ‘leapfrog’ directly to the Supreme Court and as a result the appeal will be heard by the Court of Appeal on a date to be confirmed in 2018. We will report and provide analysis on the Court of Appeal’s judgment when it is published.
