Class Action Lawsuit Filed Against Uber Over Driver Pay Dispute

Rafii & Nazarian, LLP, is filing a class action lawsuit against Uber for defrauding drivers of a fair commission. The plaintiff, a driver for Uber, alleges that Uber uses a fare structure that intentionally shortchanges drivers.

The lawsuit is being filed in Superior Court in Los Angeles. The complaint states that "Uber essentially calculates two fares for each ride - one charged to the passenger and a cheaper one used to determine the driver's pay." This results in Uber keeping the difference and making more money off each ride, according to the suit.

The impact of upfront pricing on Uber drivers

Uber offers upfront pricing to passengers, which they say helps passengers know how much their ride will cost before they order a ride. However, according to Uber drivers, they are getting shortchanged by their employer because of how they calculate each ride.

The difference in the fare charged to the passenger compared to what the driver is actually paid violates their terms of agreement, according to the lawsuit. Uber drivers sign an agreement when they are hired that says they will receive their payment from passengers after Uber takes their designated fee, which is around 25 percent in California.

The allegations that Uber is violating the terms of agreement with drivers could lead to an award or settlement for Uber drivers depending on the outcome of this lawsuit. Are you an Uber driver?
