Yaseen Aslam, the former Uber driver who's landmark case against the minicab giant left them reeling after an initial court victory, returns to court tomorrow to find out whether Uber's appeal has been successful.

Yaseen, who is from High Wycombe, along with James Farrar, who are the lead names in the case, have argued that they are employees of Uber, rather than limb b workers. The action was also brought on behalf of 19 other workers 

The action has been backed by the the independent Workers Union of Great Britain. The GMB are listed as secondary claimants in the case.

The initial decision  pertaining to the case was made in 2016,  where it was ruled that Uber drivers are not self-employed, and therefore should be entitled to the same basic employment rights as other workers such as minimum wage as well as basic holiday entitlement.

The result of the appeal against the original decision will take place at 3.30pm at the London Court of Appeal.
