From Business Insider:
A federal court handed Uber drivers in California a small victory on Tuesday, allowing them to proceed with some parts of their class action lawsuit over employment benefits they claim the company owes them.
The court ruled that a group of approximately 4,800 drivers can collectively sue Uber for allegedly denying them expense reimbursements and itemized pay statements — benefits guaranteed to all employees under state law — by misclassifying them as independent contractors prior to Proposition 22’s passage.

Uber did not respond to a request for comment on this story.
