The 'Gig Economy' - Uber Appeal
This is the fourth part in a series of webinars on the regulation of the gig economy and will cover Uber’s appeal against the Employment Tribunal judgment that its drivers were ‘workers’ entitled to basic rights.
During this session, barrister Ben Amunwa from 36 Group, an observer who attended the Employment Appeal Tribunal, will provide a valuable first-hand insight into the appeal hearing and will assist viewers:
· Understand the key arguments advanced by Uber on appeal and how they interact with the existing authorities on employment status and internet platforms
· Appreciate the implications of Uber’s appeal in the context of other gig economy litigations and likely future developments
· Gain an overview of how Uber is attempting to overcome an Employment Tribunal judgment that is highly critical of its contractual arrangements
· Learn how Uber’s case has developed between the Tribunal hearing and appeal
· Consider Uber’s arguments in light of upcoming developments in the UK Supreme Court in the case of Pimlico Plumbers v Smith (discussed in Part 2 of this series)
