Uber Class action suit in California could be worth a Billion Dollars or more


Well-Known Member
U.S. District Judge Edward Chen of San Francisco said one claim — that Uber had violated California labor laws by classifying drivers as independent contractors rather than employees, denying them overtime, work expenses and other benefits — could be worth $1 billion or more if the drivers went to trial and won employee status. The state would be entitled to three-fourths of any labor law penalties, which were valued at $1 million in the proposed settlement.
