Uber is offering $0.11 per on-trip mile (i.e. driving customers) as a settlement.
Uber is offering a confidential settlement of 11 cents per on-trip mile to a large group of drivers who did not opt-out of arbitration against Uber as part of the famous O’Connor lawsuit.
The drivers are suing Uber claiming they are actually employees of the company. The drivers base this argument on the fact that Uber exercises vast control over most aspects of driving for them. If you are part of the select group of drivers, you should have been contacted by now. As employees, these drivers would be entitled to recover damages for vehicle and other expenses incurred while driving for Uber.
What Uber Wants In Return
1). Agree to waive future claims against Uber over their employment status and,
2). Agree to not talk about this settlement. Confidentiality.
Would you guys take $0.11 per mile going all the way back to 2013?
