Uber drivers are definitely ‘workers’

The Supreme Court has confirmed, in Aslam v Uber, that Uber drivers are not self employed in their own right, but are limb (b) workers during the period their apps are switched on for work.  As workers they are entitled to many rights, including holiday pay, NMW, protection from discrimination, whistleblowing, written particulars, and more, but not the right to claim unfair dismissal, redundancy pay, or to receive statutory notice.
