BK Law Arbitrating Claims Against Pizza Properties of North Carolina on Behalf of Delivery Drivers
Do you deliver for Pizza Properties of North Carolina, a Domino’s Pizza franchise? If so, you may not have been properly reimbursed for your vehicle expenses (like gas, mileage, wear and tear, depreciation, etc.).
This month, several delivery drivers retained Biller & Kimble to pursue claims against Pizza Properties of North Carolina for underpayment of vehicle expenses. Although some of the driver’s may have signed arbitration agreements when they began employment, meaning those individuals cannot be a party to a class action lawsuit, Biller & Kimble’s skilled attorneys are pursuing these claims in arbitration.
The drivers allege that federal law requires Pizza Properties of North Carolina 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 Pizza Properties of North Carolina did neither and paid less than the IRS rate.
The drivers seek to recover the difference between the IRS rate and the reimbursement received for each mile driven. The current IRS reimbursement rate for business-related travel is $0.57 per mile. So, for example, if a delivery driver was only reimbursed $0.20 per mile, that driver could be owed $0.37 for each mile driven on behalf of the company, plus potentially an additional, equal amount in liquidated damages under Federal law.
