Leigh Day act 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 the right to paid holiday and the right to receive the National Minimum Wage. We are claiming compensation for Uber’s failure to pay its drivers holiday pay and the National Minimum Wage.
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 already won in the Uber Employment Tribunal and Employment Appeal Tribunal for this claim, in which the courts found Uber to be in breach of UK employment law. Uber denied its drivers worker status based on its business model and denied acting as a private hire taxi company, instead claiming that they are simply an app which connects drivers to passengers. We believe that this statement is untrue and has resulted in the unfair treatment of Uber drivers. It is time Uber granted its driver workers' rights.
Ubers last step is to make an appeal to the Supreme Court, this is where the final decision determining if Uber drivers are workers will be decided.
Based on our past wins in all three Tribunal cases, we believe we have a strong chance of winning the final case on behalf of our clients. Although we cannot be certain until we have the Supreme Court's decision.
If you have recently driven for Uber or are currently driving for Uber, you may be eligible to receive up to £12,000.
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.
