Uber Drivers Employment Claim
The Supreme Court has ruled that Uber Drivers are entitled to workers’ rights. This means they are entitled to holiday pay and during the period they worked for Uber should have been paid the minimum wage.
This is a breakthrough decision and opens the gates for many more drivers to claim their own compensation. If you drove for Uber at any time since 1st July 2015, you may qualify to sign up for compensation with Nayyars Solicitors. If successful, then you could be awarded thousands of pounds in backdated pay.
Your case will be funded on a No Win No Fee Agreement basis.

What is the Uber Case about?
The Supreme Court has ruled that drivers for Uber were “workers”. This means that Uber should have paid its drivers the minimum wage and/or holiday pay. You can now claim this back dated money.
Does this cover UberEats workers?
The decision was only in relation to Uber Taxi Drivers. However, you may wish to register your interest for an UberEats claim and if the position changes we will contact you.
If I win my case, how will I be compensated?
The amount you will receive will depend on your individual driving history.

We will assess your case on its own facts and ensure that you get the maximum compensation that is due to you.
If I lose the case, do I have to pay Uber?
No you should not have to pay Uber. The case is being run on a No Win No Fee Basis.
