Cloisters’ Jason Galbraith-Marten QC and Sheryn Omeri to appear in Court of Appeal for Uber drivers

This week, Cloisters barristers, Jason Galbraith-Marten QC and Sheryn Omeri will appear in the Court of Appeal, instructed by Bates Wells Braithwaite, on behalf of Claimant Uber drivers, Yaseen Aslam and James Farrar defending Uber’s appeal against the finding of the London Central Employment Tribunal and Employment Appeal Tribunal that Uber drivers meet the statutory definition of “worker” and are therefore entitled to be paid minimum wage and holiday pay.

As it did before the EAT, Uber will argue that the drivers are independent contractors for whom Uber London Limited acts as agent in accepting bookings on their behalf.
