Uber submits request to Supreme Court appealing a decision in UK

Uber filed a request to appeal the Supreme Court a decision by a British tribunal which said its drivers should have employees’ rights such as the base pay, the taxi app stated on Friday.

Last year, 2 motorists effectively argued at a British employment tribunal that the ride-hailing company exerted significant control over them to offer an on-demand taxi service and should give them workers’ rights such as holiday entitlement and rest breaks.

The company appealed to the Employment Appeal Tribunal which ruled against it previously this month.

“We have this afternoon asked for permission to appeal straight to the Supreme Court so that this case can be solved earlier instead of later,” stated a spokesman.

Uber says its motorists enjoy the flexibility of their work and are self-employed, entitling them in British law to just fundamental entitlements such as health and safety.
