Uber Heads To Court Over How It Classifies Its Drivers

What do you think? Will the courts limit this case to just three plaintiffs or allow all 160,000 drivers into the mix?

US District Judge Edward Chen is slated to decide on Thursday whether to grant class action status on a lawsuit in which three drivers are suing Uber for reportedly misclassifying them as independent contractors rather than employees. Chen's decision could have a huge impact on Uber's business model and also create a ripple effect throughout the entire on-demand economy.
