More than 160 local pizza delivery drivers to share $1 million settlement
CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - More than 160 local pizza delivery drivers will share a $1 million settlement over being underpaid in terms of wages and mileage.
They are employed by a local Domino’s franchisee with 19 Tri-State stores.
Their attorney says the drivers were paid at or below minimum wage. He also says they were reimbursed at 28 cents per mile instead of the 55 cents per mile which is the standard the Internal Revenue Service uses.
“It’s a common practice. It’s something that happens nationwide,” said Andrew Kimble, an attorney with Biller & Kimble. “We are in fact in dozens of states bringing this exact same case on behalf of delivery drivers -- mostly at the big three pizza companies.”
Each driver will get about $6,000 if the settlement is approved by a judge, which should happen before the end of the week.
Kimble says he hopes that is difference-making money.
