Law Centre NI has published a new legal briefing on the recent UK Supreme Court ruling in the ‘Uber’ case.
The Supreme Court ruled in favour of Uber drivers in the case of Uber BV and others v Aslam and others in a judgment which is likely to have a great impact on the growing ‘gig economy’. This decision is likely to have far-reaching consequences for workers in this growing employment sector, and for businesses that rely on a ‘gig economy’ model.
In this briefing, our dedicated employment team has analysed the Supreme Court’s decision and identified the main legal justifications and lessons that can be drawn. This briefing will be a great help to many advisers around Northern Ireland, who can expect to receive calls on related issues in the wake of this high-profile case.
