Dinah Rose lawyer for Uber told the Employment Tribunal that the driver accepts the booking first and then Uber accepts.
Every Council must revoke Ubers PHO license and prosecute every private hire vehicle driver on their circuit for plying for hire,incorrect insurance,operating a private hire operator business without a license,last but not least prosecute Uber as an accomplice encouraging others to break the law.

They have been prosecuted by a council...I believe it is Basingstoke...for plying for hire...and uber are appealing on their behalf...this case will be very important for the whole uber operation in the UK...If they are found to be ''plying for hire'' which I believe they will be...uber will have to change the mode of operation or quit the UK....

Surely it's that those self-employed should have worker's status.


Does it matter, Uber's barrister told the tribunal that the driver accepts the job, uber merely facilitate

If that is the case surely the driver would need an operators license.

They have said publicly they are a licensed private hire operator.

Thus they 'operate', thus they;

'in the course of business to make provision for the invitation or acceptance of bookings for a private hire vehicle'.

Thus they accept, not facilitate.
