Uber & the Supreme Court – The final word in worker status?
Monday 22nd February 2021
This coming Friday, the Supreme Court will hand down its long-awaited decision in the case of Uber BV and others v Aslam and others. Barristers from 12 King’s Bench Walk will be hosting a live webinar to talk about what it means for employment law and worker status.
The dispute between the ride sharing app and its drivers has slowly made its way through the Tribunal, the EAT and the Court of Appeal over the last four and a half years. Finally, following a remote hearing before the Supreme Court in July last year, one of the most hotly-anticipated employment law judgments is now ready.
Will it be a victory for Uber, despite their setbacks at previous stages? Or will the decisions of the lower courts be upheld? Will this be the last word in employment status, or will it be another case that merely turns on its facts? Join Laura Robinson and Tim Goodwin to find out as they analyse the Supreme Court’s decision, live on Monday afternoon.
The webinar will run for approximately 45 minutes, including time for questions.
