Uber was obliged to reassess the contracts of the 139 drivers, said lawyer Stéphane Teyssier, confirming a report from a regional newspaper. The decision was made by a labor court before which the Uber drivers from Lyon had gone.

Teyssier said that court relied on a 2020 ruling by a Court of Cassation that Uber drivers should be considered employees of the company.
