Are Delivery Drivers Being Fairly Compensated?

Pizza Delivery

Our attorneys are currently investigating potential class action lawsuits on behalf of delivery drivers for Quiznos, Dominos, Pizza Hut, Papa Johns and other restaurants or businesses. Under federal and state law, delivery drivers must be properly compensated for gas and wear and tear on their vehicles. This compensation must be high enough above the minimum wage to fully offset expenses. A federal court has held that fair compensation for wear and tear may be an extra $4.20 per hour, meaning that many tipped delivery drivers must be paid a total of at least $6.33 per hour and – in some circumstances – over $12 an hour.

However, many restaurants do not fully compensate their drivers, in violation of the law. For example, Pizza Hut may only be paying delivery drivers in some large, metropolitan areas $4.25 an hour, and many other restaurants – including Quiznos – may also be in violation of the minimum wage laws. Delivery drivers who are underpaid may be entitled to back-pay for the time they were underpaid, higher wages going forward, and other damages.

If you, or someone you know, served as a delivery driver for Quiznos, Dominos, Pizza Hut, Papa Johns or another restaurant or business, you may have been denied fair wages. Please contact us as soon as possible to discuss your legal options.
