Kirsten Eiser,Siya Ngcamu, Shane Johnson and Keah Challenor ( Attorneys at Webber Wentzel Attorneys) (2 March 2021). Uber drivers in South Africa : Employees or independent contractors?.
Opinion (including blogs)
Uber drivers are currently classified as independent contractors in South Africa, but there are plans to launch a class action to compel Uber SA to confer several key rights on its drivers, which, if successful, will affect the rights of platform workers.
The outcome of the potential class action will significantly influence not only the rights of Uber drivers, but also the rights of other individuals undertaking platform work. This is an area which the authors hope to continue to monitor and to provide updates as soon as new developments arise.
