Uber drivers in other parts of the world now have employment rights like paid holiday after Uber was beaten in court. Uber won’t pay South African drivers unless we take them to court. Drivers may be entitled to paid holiday and unpaid overtime.
The UK law firm Leigh Day, who won the legal fight against ride sharing app Uber in the UK are bringing their expertise to a similar court case against Uber in South Africa and it may have to compensate drivers here.
The case will be on behalf of drivers wanting to be recognised as employees, rather than as independent contractors. Leigh Day are assisting SA based law firm Mbuyisa Moleele attorneys, who will be launching a similar class action in SA and have asked local Uber drivers to join the suit.
