United Kingdom - Addison Lee drivers are workers - September 30, 2017
A Central London employment tribunal has ruled that drivers at Addison Lee are entitled to workers’ rights such as minimum wage and holiday pay. Addison Lee argued that its drivers were self-employed. The drivers, supported by the trade union GMB, were heard by the tribunal in July 2017. They claimed that they deserved basic workers’ rights. Addison Lee has announced appealing the decision. Its drivers very often work very long hours, in excess of a weekly 60 hours, in order to earn enough to cover their basic living costs.
