French Court Rules that Uber has Misclassified Employees 

France’s Court of Cassation, the country’s highest court of law, recently ruled that Uber should have classified a former Uber driver as an employee rather than a self-employed worker.  The ruling is the latest in a series of lawsuits against Uber for improperly treating drivers as independent contractors to save money. Other ride-sharing drivers may use the case as precedent to demand employee classification because independent contractors aren’t given the same benefits such as minimum wage, overtime, insurance, and more.
