A court in Brussels ruled that UberX respects the legal requirements in Brussels and can continue to operate in the Capital of Belgium. The judge dismissed the appeal filed by a taxi association claiming that the company unlawfully provides taxi services. According to Lalibre.com, the judge decided that Uber does not provide transportation, does not own any vehicle, and does not need taxi license. In addition, it was ruled that the drivers cannot be considered employed by Uber, because they are free to choose their work time and there is no relation of subordination between the company and the drivers, which is typical of an employment relationship.
