Uber aims to change the ruling at the two-day hearing at the Supreme Court that previously said employees should be classified as workers in what could be a landmark decision.
The legal battle began back in 2016 when an employment tribunal ruled in favour of a group of Uber drivers who requested employment protections such as minimum wage and holiday pay.
If Uber loses again it could jeopardize its business model and will not be able to classify its drivers as self-employed.
The case could also have significant ramifications for other companies such as Deliveroo and Airbnb if Uber loses.
