Uber loses lastest UK legal bid to block worker rights for drivers
Uber lost on Wednesday its latest court bid to stop British drivers from being classified as workers, entitling them to rights such as the minimum wage, in a decision which jeopardises the taxi app's business model.
Two drivers successfully argued at a tribunal in 2016 that the Silicon Valley firm exerted significant control over them to provide an on-demand service and that they should cease to be considered self-employed, which gives few protections in law.
