This is what you have been writing to us about this week.

You may be aware that recently the Supreme Court ruled Uber drivers should be given workers’ rights, but what you might not know is that this landmark judgment will have repercussions for others working in the gig economy.

Leigh Day is also representing Addison Lee drivers and Stuart couriers in similar workers’ rights claims.

Both of these companies currently use contracts that class people working for them as ‘independent contractors’ which means they are not entitled to workers’ rights.

This judgment should be heeded as a warning to companies with a similar business model that they cannot continue to operate in this way.

We hope the Supreme Court’s decision helps Addison Lee and Stuart to recognise that the people working for them should be given the basic rights such as holiday pay and the national minimum wage. 

After all, all these people are asking for is to be treated fairly.

Michael Newman, employment team partner, Leigh Day
