On Friday, 2,480 Parisian taxi drivers are taking Uber to court, accusing the platform of unfair competition. They collectively demand €455 million in damages. Supported by nine professional associations and unions, this legal action marks a new chapter in the ongoing dispute between these drivers and Uber since February 2021. Launched after a decision by the Court of Cassation recognizing a subordinate relationship between Uber and one of its drivers, the accusation revolves around non-compliance with French labor and tax laws, branding Uber as engaging in unfair competition. The hearing aims to demonstrate that Uber has made illegality a principle of operation, causing an economic harm estimated at over €9,300 per driver per year, along with moral damages. Uber dismisses the action as “baseless” and “anachronistic,” emphasizing its impact on over 35,000 drivers using the app to generate income. Additionally, in a separate case, Uber was ordered on October 4 by the Paris Court of Appeals to compensate 149 taxi drivers for unfair competition related to its former UberPop application.
