Global News – Uber Facing a Massive, $200-million Class-Action Lawsuit

Lior on Mcarthur Uber Class Action

Employment lawyer Lior Samfiru, partner at Samfiru Tumarkin LLP, joined host Jeff McArthur on Global’s The Morning Show to discuss why his firm is representing Uber driver David Heller in a $200 million class-action lawsuit launched against the ride sharing giant in Ontario.

Samfiru explained why Uber drivers are actually employees of Uber and not independent contractors, the growing dilemma surrounding the misclassification of employees as independent contractors in Canada, and why an Uber driver’s only option to confront the company on any work-related matters is to travel 6,000 km to a court in the Netherlands.
