Addison Lee loses appeal on worker rights

A claim that Addison Lee's drivers are employees, not self-employed contractors, has been upheld in a major blow to the taxi company.

The Employment Appeal Tribunal ruling confirms that drivers should be paid the minimum wage and holiday pay.

The judgement could affect thousands of Addison Lee drivers and follows similar rulings against ride-sharing firm Uber and delivery company Hermes.

GMB, which brought the case, called it a "huge win" for worker rights.
