Uber: the Court of Cassation considers that a driver is well paid
The Court of Cassation estimated Wednesday March 4 that the drivers of the start-up Uber were indeed employees. A victory for many workers.
It was a decision expected by many and feared by Uber, the American giant. On Wednesday March 4, the Court of Cassation confirmed the requalification as an employee of an independent driver who worked for this application. The Court, in fact, considered that the driver did not have his own clientele, that he did not set his prices, did not have the choice of his trips, nor was free from his services. In short, he was not really independent. This decision could set a precedent.
“All drivers work under the same conditions”
“We know that all drivers work under the same conditions and the same criteria. So once we have examined all the mechanisms of the working relationship with a driver, there is no reason why all VTC drivers who work for Uber should not be in the same situation.“, Explains lawyer Fabien Masson.
