Uber has annouced it will grant drivers upto £2,000 in sickpay if they have been unable to work for 2 weeks or longer due to sickness or Injury. It comes with the condition that drivers must have made atleast 500 trips, and will have to pay a £2 a week fee to pay for the cover. In addition they will cover £300 per week, if a driver is involved in an accident during a trip, or if the driver is summoned for Jury service.
This will come as a huge relief for the 40,000 British drivers who currently partner with the firm.
