Uber driver not an ’employee’

In a recent case, an Uber driver’s access to the Uber app had been terminated as a result of failing to maintain an adequate overall rating, and he applied to the Fair Work Commission (FWC) for an unfair dismissal claim against Uber.

However, the FWC held that he was an independent contractor and not an ’employee’, and therefore his application for unfair dismissal was dismissed.
