Route 41 pizza delivery drivers: Are you being properly reimbursed for your delivery expenses?
This month, Biller & Kimble has filed four arbitration cases against Route 41 Pizza, a Domino’s franchise based in the Green Bay, Wisconsin area. The drivers claim that Route 41 Pizza underpaid them for vehicle expenses (commonly called “mileage”).
The drivers allege that federal law requires Route 41 to either (1) track and pay delivery drivers’ actual expenses, or (2) reimburse the drivers at the IRS standard business mileage rate, which is currently $.575 per mile. The drivers claim Route 41 Pizza did neither and paid less than the IRS rate.
The drivers are seeking the difference between the IRS rate and the reimbursement they actually received for each mile driven. The drivers also seek additional damages under Wisconsin law.
For example, a driver who receives $.27 per mile driven is arguably owed $.305 per mile (the difference between the rate paid and the IRS rate). If that driver drove 10,000 miles for his or her employer, he or she would be entitled to $3,050 in unpaid wages, plus possibly an additional 1.5x that amount in damages under Federal and Wisconsin law, plus other additional damages.
