Top French court recognizes Uber driver as employee

PARIS, March 4 (Reuters) - France’s high court has granted an Uber driver’s request to reclassify his contractual relationship with the ride-hailing operator as an employment contract, it said on Wednesday. “When connecting to the Uber digital platform, a relationship of subordination is established between the driver and the company,” France’s Cour de Cassation said in a statement.

“Hence, the driver does not provide services as a self-employed person, but as an employee.” (Reporting by Dominique Vidalon; Editing by Jan Harvey)
