Leigh Day acts on behalf of Uber drivers who claim that they should be treated as workers rather than self-employed contractors..
If you are a worker then you have certain legal protections and benefits, such as
We are claiming compensation for Uber’s failure to pay its drivers holiday pay and the National Minimum Wage.
If you currently or have recently driven for Uber or are currently driving for Uber, you may be eligible to receive up to £12,000.
We believe drivers should receive the maximum back pay that they are legally entitled to claim. We are claiming holiday pay for the whole period drivers have worked for Uber. We are arguing that it is wrong to limit this to two years’ back pay. Joining the Leigh Day claim means that you could be eligible to claim holiday pay for the entire time you have worked for Uber.
We do not think your flexibility as an Uber driver will be affected if you are treated as a worker. We think that you will still be able to work when you want to, but you will receive proper pay for the hours that you work.
Joining the claim is straightforward and only takes a few minutes to do. You do not need to provide any documents such as tax returns to find out if you are eligible to join the claim.
We are acting under a “no win no fee” agreement, so you don’t have to pay anything unless you win your claim. We have been successful so far in the claims we have brought on behalf of a group of Uber drivers.
The Employment Tribunal, Employment Appeal Tribunal (EAT) and Court of Appeal all found Uber to be wrongly applying UK employment law. Uber denied that its drivers’ were workers and said that it was not a private hire taxi company, instead claiming that it was simply an app that connects drivers to passengers. We argued that this was incorrect and resulted in the unfair treatment of Uber drivers.
Uber made a final appeal to the Supreme Court in July 2020. In February 2021 the Supreme Court handed down a landmark ruling in favour of Uber drivers; agreeing with us that the claimants are workers.
Join the claim today to receive the compensation and workers’ rights the courts have ruled that you deserve. It is time Uber granted its drivers workers' rights.
