Recent news that Uber had lost the final round of a five-year legal battle brought by some of its drivers prompted Business Leader to ask Waterfront's Head of Employment Law Anthony Purvis for his thoughts on the ruling.
Within his article Anthony looked closely at whether the Uber drivers were truly self-employed or were they ‘workers’ and thus entitled to certain employment rights as a consequence, including national minimum wage and paid holidays.
Anthony also discussed what the ruling could mean for others who engage a workforce on a self-employed basis.
