Uber Terms Of Agreement

Chances are you missed the fine print. Just before Thanksgiving, Uber, the popular ride-sharing company, was changing its terms of use to include a mandatory arbitration clause that now makes it harder for drivers to sue the company in the event of a crash. Now we are good in January and it is likely that you have accepted these conditions. That doesn`t mean you don`t need to know what those terms mean. Uber`s labour dispute strategy has shown how powerful arbitration agreements can be in the Gig Economy. The battle to classify ride-sharing drivers as independent contractors appears to have ended after Uber announced it had settled a pair of disputes worth more than $20 million. The first case, O`Connor v. Uber was first picked up in 2013 by a group of Uber drivers, who argued that they should be seen as employees and not as independent contractors. By classifying drivers as contractors, Uber avoids providing benefits to traditional employment, such as health insurance, paid sick time and workers` compensation, drivers argued. In some markets, drivers can rent bikes or scooters via the Lyft platform to get to their destination. In some markets, these bikes and scooters are owned by Lyft.

In other markets, Lyft operates a bike or scooter sharing program on behalf of third parties. In both cases, the rental and use of bicycles and scooters via the Lyft platform are subject to additional agreements between you and Lyft and third parties that apply to the relevant market (“additional agreements”). Please check all applicable endorsements carefully. If you do not agree to be bound by the terms of an endorsement, you cannot rent or use bikes or scooters in this market. In the event of a conflict between this agreement and the terms of an endorsement, the terms of the agreement are monitored. This paragraph applies to all versions of the Lyft platform you purchase from the Apple App Store.
