JEDDAH: Uber and some of its rivals will have to change their business models in the UK after losing a court battle, re-classifying its drivers as workers, Arab News reported.

The company is also required to give its drivers access to vacation pay, rest breaks and minimum wage while they’re using the app.

The partly PIF-owned firm is also now required to sign a direct contract with passengers when providing car journeys, according to Bloomberg.

The European Union is following the UK to push for app drivers to be considered as employees rather than self-employed.

This could cost the sector a 4.5 billion euros ($5.1 billion) a year, Bloomberg reported.
