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

From San Francisco Chronicle:

A proposed settlement could see Uber pay misclassified drivers $8.4 million.

The proposed settlement has yet to be approved by a federal judge in San Francisco, but it would deliver payouts to drivers who were not covered by the company’s arbitration clause and who say they were misclassified as contractors instead of full employees.

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.
