Judgment in Uber v. Aslam, Farrar, Dawson and others UKEAT/0056/17/DA

In Uber BV and others v Aslam and others [2018] IRLR 97 EAT, the Employment Appeal Tribunal (EAT) held that Uber drivers are 'workers' for the purposes of statutory employment rights. In this case, the Employment Appeal Tribunal was required to consider whether (as held by the tribunal) Uber drivers in London meet the definition of worker, or whether, as argued by Uber, each driver runs an independent business to which Uber provides services in the capacity of an agent.
