Ride-hailing app had appealed against ruling that drivers were workers with minimum-wage rights and not self-employed The ride-hailing firm Uber has lost its appeal against a ruling that its drivers should be classed as workers with minimum-wage rights, in a case that could have major ramifications for labour rights in the growing gig economy. The US company, which claims that drivers are self-employed, said it would launch a further appeal against the Employment Appeal Tribunal decision, meaning the case could end up in thesupreme court next year.

  • A law firm that has brought claims against Uber and Deliveroo over their employment practices says the Gym Group may have legal questions to answer over the contracts they offer personal trainers. It comes after MP Frank Field, chair of the Work and Pensions Committee, on Thursday labelled the fitness chain’s working practices “egregious” and “dubious”. According to the MP, a whistleblower highlighted the terms of the company’s policy when signing up “freelance independent personal trainers”. According to reports, the trainers are signed up as “self-employed” but they must give notice of holidays, wear a uniform at all times, work to specific shift patterns, are restricted with regard to setting prices and must give notice of the termination of the agreement. Michael Newman from law firm Leigh Day which took Uber to the employment tribunal and is involved in claims being brought against Deliveroo said that the Gym Group may be in breach of the law in how they categorise people who work for them. “It may be the case that once again we have a company looking to avoid its responsibilities by using bogus ‘self employment’ resulting in the denial of basic employment rights for those workers,” Mr Newman said. “We have seen such behaviour before and everything which has been reported suggested this could also be the case in regard to how the Gym Group treat people who have to behave as workers but have none or only some of the benefits.” Mr Field said that the restrictions put on the trainers were “incompatible” with self-employment and that such practices are typically used to put “workers off claiming employment rights and protections they may be due”. He added: “This contract from Gym Group is the latest in a long line of examples highlighting dubious self-employed workforce models - and it is one of the most egregious examples I’ve seen to date. “It is packed full of clauses that clearly suggest Gym Group’s 'freelance independent personal trainers’ are nothing of the sort, but are in fact workers entitled to the rights and protections that come with that status.” A spokesperson for The Gym Group said: “We note the letter from the Rt Hon Frank Field MP. “We take the feedback of our self-employed personal trainers who we partner with extremely seriously and we will be happy to co-operate and respond in full to the issues raised by the requested deadline of 10 November.”
  • Uber challenges UK court case on drivers’ rightsUber appealed before a British employment tribunal on against a ruling that would give its drivers official worker status, as the company also battles against a threatened ban in London. The landmark case brought by two Uber drivers could have far-reaching implications for people employed in Britain’s “gig economy”, many of whom complain about precarious working conditions and low pay. The US…View On WordPress
  • “While Uber is free to design its business model, regulators need to ensure that the framework they operate in protects fundamental rights and values, including workers rights… If Uber cannot come up with a business model that is both innovative and compliant with the law, this may say more about Uber‘s innovation capacity than about the regulator. Not all tech innovations try to thrive regardless of their impact on labor rights, the environment or social inequalities. In the future, non-civic tech should be as unthinkable as cars without speed limits or belts.”

  • Today (as I understand it) is the deadline for pip’s parent to appeal their TPR. (They had 90 days from the last court hearing.) I don’t expect case workers to necessarily let me know if anything happens or not, but I plan to send out a slew of emails tonight to find out. An appeal would not overturn the case or send pip away or anything, but it would *significantly* prolong the process. Lack of appeal means we’ve just crossed another deadline and have gotten a little closer to adoption. So, no news would be great.
