Uber's leapfrog appeal to the Supreme Court refused

  • Posted

Last month we saw the Employment Appeal Tribunal dismissing Uber’s appeal in Uber v Aslam and upholding the Tribunals decision that drivers working for Uber were ‘workers’ rather than self-employed and therefore had certain basic employment rights such as holiday and sick pay

Following the decision Uber appealed to the Supreme Court in an attempt to ‘leapfrog’ the Court of Appeal, something which is allowed in only a small number of extremely important cases. The Supreme Court has however rejected this appeal and the case will now be heard by the Court of Appeal next year.
