Uber employees have taken legal action in an attempt to become employees of the controversial taxi company.

Currently under the contracts offered by Uber, those operating for Uber are self-employed contractors. However, an employee claim is seeking to change their status to employees of the company rather than such contractors. As a contractor, Uber were able to not have the same employment rights in place that other taxi companies had, thus leading competitors to claim that they had an advantage, especially regarding finances.


An 82-year-old grandad and former soldier has had his unfair dismissal empoyment tribunal case against DIY giants B&Q adjourned until July after he was dismissed for keeping his till open for three minutes.

Ivor Smith was dismissed for leaving his till open for over three minutes at the Parkhead store in the East End of Glasgow, although he did not leave it unattended. The former staff member claimed to have been counting £200 in cash and wanted to check it was accurate. However, he was ushered from the building due to the incident following 12 years of employment with the company.

Following what he described as being treated “with utter contempt” Mr Smith opted to take legal action against his former employer.
