A group of South African Uber (UBER.N) drivers are to go to court to seek rights including compensation for unpaid overtime and holiday pay, their lawyers said on Tuesday, hoping for a similar victory to that of British drivers this month. In both Britain and South Africa, Uber drivers are treated as self-employed, affording them only minimal protections in law – a status the U.S. ride-hailing company sought to maintain in its long-running UK legal battle.
