On July 27, 2022, a Domino’s Pizza employee filed suit against M Pizza, Inc. who operates several franchise Domino’s Pizza stores in in West Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, and Virginia. The lawsuit is called McCumbee v. M Pizza, Inc., et al.
The plaintiff, a current Domino’s delivery driver, seeks to represent all M Pizza, Inc. delivery drivers in federal court for unpaid wages. Plaintiff claims that M Pizza, Inc. broke the law by underpaying its delivery drivers for automobile expenses.
Like many similar pizza delivery drivers around the country, the plaintiff argues that he and other drivers should have been reimbursed for his vehicle expenses at the IRS standard business mileage rate, which is currently $.625 per mile. Plaintiff argues the delivery drivers are entitled to this reimbursement rate because M Pizza, Inc., did not keep records of or reimburse its delivery drivers based on the drivers’ actual expenses. Instead, they reimbursed at a set per-delivery basis that plaintiff claims resulted in underpayments to the delivery drivers. Because of these underpayments, the plaintiff claims that his and the other delivery drivers’ effective wages fell below minimum wage.
