Uber offers drivers cash to replace holiday pay — live updates


Ride-hailing app Uber is expected to contact both current and former drivers, offering them cash payments in place of backdated holiday pay. 

On Tuesday, the company said it would offer all of its 70,000 drivers in the UK, its biggest European market, benefits such as the minimum wage, holiday pay and pensions in a fundamental shake-up to the gig economy business model. 

However there remains some dispute over whether the minimum wage should be paid to drivers only when they are undertaking trips, or if the time they spend waiting for fares should also count. Unions have argued the latter and threatening further court action in the near future.
