Pizza delivery drivers in Chillicothe, Lancaster, Canal Winchester, Pataskula, Marysville, Washington Courthouse, Lancaster, Waverly, Jackson, Piketon, Gallipolis, Zanesville, and surrounding areas—you might be owed back wages.
The Cincinnati Law Firm Biller & Kimble has filed dozens of lawsuits and arbitration disputes against pizza companies across the country asserting the same basic minimum wage claim: drivers are required to drive their own cars for work, are paid minimum wage or a tipped wage, and are not properly reimbursed for the expenses they pay to operate their vehicles.
The Department of Labor requires that delivery drivers must be reimbursed for their actual expenses, OR they must receive IRS Mileage Rate, which is currently $.58 per mile.
Instead of paying the IRS rate, pizza shops typically pay their drivers a flat amount for each delivery (ex. $1.25 per delivery) or at some per-mile rate that is far below the IRS rate. Our investigations show that many delivery drivers, including those in southeastern Ohio, are subject to the same or similar policy, and could be entitled to back wages.
If you are not receiving the IRS mileage rate, you may be entitled to damages.
