Uber and the App Drivers & Couriers Union (ADCU) have been successful in their court case against Sefton Council & other named regional operators in a landmark ruling that will affect private hire operators in England.
Uber brought the case following an earlier decision by the UK Supreme Court, which ruled that Uber drivers were workers. The landmark ruling had huge implications on the global giant's UK tax obligations.
Uber sought to take further action and requested the High Court to rule whether other private-hire taxi operators throughout England, not just in London, should also enter into a similar model of agreement with its customers.
