the ride ahead for the insurance industry

On 19 February 2021, the Supreme Court delivered its judgment in the Uber test case. The decision will have major ramifications for the so-called “gig-economy” and, in turn, future underwriting considerations.

The Supreme Court judgment provides guidance on when the law now considers someone to be a “worker” and when someone is deemed to be “working”. Furthermore, when combined with an analysis of the Supreme Court judgments in April 2020 relating to an employer’s vicarious liability for their employees, the ramifications are potentially massive.

The potential reach of the principles involved in the case are vast and will almost certainly impact the way many of us work now and in the future. This webinar will analyse the Uber test case and its implications for future underwriting considerations.
