Webinar: Trowers Tuesdays - Uber's loss and employment status


Share

For our most recent Trowers Tuesdays, Rebecca McKay, Imogen Reseigh and Ellie Clot answered questions on employment status.

The Supreme Court recently decided that the drivers pursuing a case against Uber were workers and not self-employed contractors. This is a key decision for the gig economy but has wider implications. The Court made clear that the focus in determining worker status is on the true nature of the actual relationship, and the written contract isn't the starting point. 

Over the last few years we have seen various cases where individuals contracted to work on a self-employed basis have argued they are workers or employees. Given this, and the need to consider employment status for tax purposes as part of IR35 assessments, it is worth reminding yourself about the types of employment status and what rights and benefits, including pensions, that they confer.
