On March 31, 2021, a former delivery driver filed suit against Bam! Pizza Management, a large franchise operator of Domino’s Pizza stores. The lawsuit is called West v. Bam! Pizza Management.
Bam! Pizza Management operates over 100 Domino’s Pizza stores in New Mexico, Texas, and Colorado. The plaintiff, a Domino’s delivery driver who seeks to represent all Bam! Pizza Management delivery drivers in federal court, claims that Bam! Pizza Management broke the law when they underpaid drivers for automobile expenses. She seeks to represent other drivers who have been treated the same way he has been.
The lawsuit alleges that Bam! Pizza Management was required to either (1) keep track of and reimburse for the drivers’ actual vehicle expenses or (2) reimburse the drivers using the IRS standard business mileage rate, which is currently $.585 per mile.
The driver claims that the Domino’s franchise operators failed to meet this standard. Because of the underpayment, the driver claims that their effective wages dropped below minimum wage. Instead of using the IRS rate, the driver claims that the Domino’s franchise operators reimburse a set, flat amount per delivery that falls far short of the IRS rate.
