Addison Lee wrongly classed drivers as self-employed, tribunal rules
Verdict in test case brought by three drivers against minicab firm could lead to wave of claims for unpaid wages and holiday pay
Drivers for London-based minicab company Addison Lee could be owed wages and holiday pay after an employment tribunal test case found that some had been wrongly classed as self-employed.
The Central London Employment Tribunal ruled that three drivers, who claimed they earned the equivalent of about £5 an hour as self-employed contractors, should have been treated as workers. That means they must receive the minimum wage of £7.50 an hour, plus holiday pay, and will be owed back pay.
