What is the
claim about?

"A group of Uber drivers who are claiming that they are "workers", rather than self-employed contractors"

We act on behalf of a group of Uber drivers who are claiming that they are “workers”, rather than self-employed contractors. We are supporting drivers who are taking legal action against Uber.

As a worker, you are entitled to certain benefits and protections, including:

  • The right to paid holiday
  • The right to receive the National Minimum Wage
  • Protection from unlawful deductions from wages (deducting money from your wages without a proper reason)
  • The right to raise concerns, such as health and safety, without the fear of being punished.

If the Uber drivers win their claim, then Uber may treat all drivers as workers going forward. However, only the drivers' who bring a legal claim will be entitled to compensation.

 


 

What is the
claim worth?

"The average Uber driver will be entitled to around £12,000 in compensation if the claim is successful"

Based on the information we have so far, we think that the average Uber driver will be entitled to around £12,000 in compensation if the claim is successful.

We are claiming compensation for:

  • Back pay for holiday pay,
  • Compensation if the driver received less than the National Minimum Wage
  • Uber driver compensation will only be available to drivers who join the claim

 


 

Is it likely that Uber drivers will win
the claim?

"We think that Uber drivers will be classed as workers and therefore drivers who join the claim will be entitled to compensation."

Although litigation is never certain, as a result of our success so far, we believe that it is likely that Uber drivers will be classed as workers and that drivers who have joined our claim will be awarded compensation.

We represented a group of Uber drivers in the Employment Tribunal, and the Tribunal ruling determined that Uber drivers could be classed as workers.

Uber appealed against the decision of the Employment Tribunal and subsequently against the decisions of the Employment Appeal Tribunal and the Court of Appeal. So far Uber's argument hasn't been accepted by any of the Tribunals. At all stages, the drivers have been successful in showing that they are workers.

Uber has now appealed to the Supreme Court and the hearing is due to take place in July 2020. If the Supreme Court decides that Uber drivers are workers, then Uber will not be able to appeal again, and the drivers will have won this part of their claim.

 


 

How is the claim
being funded?

"We are acting for Uber drivers on a 'no win, no fee' basis."

We are acting for Uber drivers on a ‘no win, no fee’ basis. This means that you do not pay anything unless you win.

If the claim is successful, we will deduct 25% plus VAT from the Uber driver’s individual compensation.

As an example, if a driver receives £10,000 in compensation, we will take 25% (£2,500) plus VAT (£500).

 


 

How do I join the claim?

"You do not need to provide any documents to find out if you are eligible to join the claim."

Our sign up process is designed to be straightforward and transparent. Finding out if you are eligible to join the claim only takes a few minutes. 

Unlike other companies, we don't require you to provide any additional documents, such as tax returns, to find out if you’re eligible.

 


 

Will drivers be entitled to Uber holiday pay?

"Yes, if the claim is successful, Uber drivers will be entitled to holiday pay."

If we are successful and the Supreme Court rule that Uber drivers are entitled to workers’ rights, then all Uber drivers across Britain will be entitled to holiday pay.

Drivers will also be entitled to receive the National Minimum Wage. Only drivers who join the claim will receive compensation for unpaid holiday pay.
