Uber's Battle with "Employee" Stakeholders

Are Uber drivers in the UK self-employed entrepreneurs, or are they really employees of Uber who deserve the rights afforded by UK employment law?

The legal status of the relationship between Uber and its drivers is crucial, both to the livelihoods of the drivers and Uber's business model.

A small number of the UK's 25,000 drivers are now taking legal action against Uber, trying to access employment rights such as holiday pay and the minimum wage.

Not surprisingly Uber is contesting the legal action, pointing to the highly flexible operating model it offers drivers.

This BBC video provides an excellent analysis of the issue.
