What's This Settlement About?

A $8,435,800 class action settlement has been reached as the result of multiple class action lawsuits against Uber.

The central issue in these lawsuits is whether Uber has misclassified drivers and deliverers as independent contractors, as opposed to its employees. In the lawsuits, lawyers alleged that because drivers and deliverers should be classified as employees, certain of Uber's conduct and policies toward drivers in California violated California labor law. Specifically, the lawsuits claimed Uber failed to reimburse drivers for vehicle-related and phone expenses and failed to provide drivers with accurate, itemized wage statements.

How Do I Qualify?

You are the part of this settlement if you are a current or former driver who has used the Uber Rides App in California between February 28, 2019, and December 16, 2020 or who has used the Uber EATS App between June 28, 2016 and October 7, 2021, and you are not bound by Uber's arbitration clause.

What Can I Get?

Each driver will receive a payout that depends on miles driven while using the Uber Rides App or Uber EATS App, either to pick up a passenger (or item such as takeout food) or while transporting a passenger or item in the car.

Driver payments will also be determined by how many drivers file claims. Assuming a 100% claims rate, and after accounting for deductions for attorneys' fees, administration costs, and service awards, the average settlement share per claiming settlement class member will be approximately $4,750. If there is a 50% claims rate, this estimate would double to $9,500.
