Ride-hailing app Uber will start to plead its landmark UK employment case this week, determining whether its drivers are employees or self-employed.

Following the lost of its operating license, the American transport company will be appealing on Wednesday against a significant case which was won by two of its drivers, who were found to be workers and were given the right for a minimum wage as well as a holiday pay.

Uber has reasoned that its app only serves as a link between its drivers and the people who needs the ride, and are not employers.
