Biller & Kimble negotiated a settlement on behalf of current and former Domino’s Pizza delivery drivers working for 21 GBR Pizza, Inc., franchisee stores located in North Carolina.
The settlement will be shared by the delivery drivers based on the miles they drove for the Domino’s franchisee from October 31, 2019, through July 14,2022.
Williams v. GBR Pizza was filed on November 26, 2021. The lawsuit alleged the company failed to compensate its drivers with minimum wages and overtime wages as required, making the company in violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act and the North Carolina Wage Laws. Delivery drivers at this Domino’s Pizza franchise were required to provide their own vehicle in order to make deliveries for the company. Instead of paying the drivers at the IRS standard business mileage rate (currently $.625 per mile), the company reimbursed the drivers at a set amount per delivery. As a result, the lawsuit alleged that the drivers received less than the IRS rate for each mile they drove. If you are a delivery driver, you probably know that this practice is very common in the pizza industry.
This case is just one of many class action lawsuits that Biller & Kimble have successfully settled on behalf of pizza delivery drivers. To learn more about those settlements, visit our Victories page.
