Latest Uber customer news: Uber could pay misclassified drivers $8.4 million, under proposed settlement of lawsuit

From San Francisco Chronicle:

The agreement would cover the class of California drivers who worked for the company between Feb. 28, 2019, to Dec. 16, 2020, and who opted out of arbitration.
