Across the country, pizza companies pad their profits by under-reimbursing their delivery drivers for gas, repairs, wear-and-tear, and other expenses drivers have to pay to use their own vehicles when making deliveries. If your employer is failing to fully reimburse you for the costs of driving your own vehicle to deliver orders to their customers, then you may be a victim of minimum wage violations and wage theft.
Finkelstein, Blankinship, Frei-Pearson & Garber, LLP is pursuing litigation against large pizza companies for failing to fully reimburse driver expenses resulting in minimum wage violations.

Under federal and state law, delivery drivers must be properly compensated for gas, repairs, wear and tear on their vehicles, and other expenses. According to the IRS, these costs can average over $0.65 per mile. Your employer should be reimbursing you that much for every mile driven. If you work for a company that does not reimburse you enough for driving your own vehicle to perform the job, does not pay you minimum wage, or considers you to be exempt from the wage and hour laws, you may be entitled to compensation.
Our attorneys have represented tens of thousands of drivers whose employment rights have been violated and recovered millions of dollars for victims of wage theft. If you or someone you know is a pizza delivery driver and feel you have been cheated out of wages or driver reimbursements, please fill out the attached form or contact us immediately to discuss your legal options.
