Uber drivers take firm to court
British drivers for Uber are to take the company to court, according to a BBC report.
Over 100 people want legal rights as employees, not self employed people.
A lawyer representing the disgruntled drivers claimed Uber is not complying with UK employment laws.
The drivers want legal rights such as being paid the minimum wage, and paid holidays.
The BBC said that Uberís response was to say that most of its drivers wanted the flexibility that being self employed gave.
But drivers, who have to pay Uber 20 percent of taking, said it was hard to scrape a living under the current arrangements.
