This post was originally published on this site


SAO PAULO (Reuters) – A superior labor court in Sao Paulo state ruled on Wednesday that there is no employment relationship between Uber (NYSE:) and its drivers, siding with the ride hailing company against a driver in the Guarulhos district.

The judge ruled against recognizing an employer-employee link, arguing the drivers can disconnect at any time from the app and have a flexible work schedule, the court said. Uber had argued that its platform is a digital intermediary and the drivers accept that condition when they sign on.
