From San Francisco Chronicle:
A proposed settlement could see Uber pay misclassified drivers $8.4 million.
Uber could pay $8.4 million in a proposed class action settlement to more than 1,300 California drivers in a labor classification dispute that predates Prop 22, the 2020 ballot initiative that classified them as contractors.
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.
