California appeals court overturns lower court decision allowing Uber drivers to settle with company as a group, which means lawsuits now have to be settled individually

September 26, 2018

  • Individual Settlement – 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco made verdict in 3-0 decision that Uber drivers wishing to sue company for classifying them as independent contractors instead of employees will have to settle with company individually, instead of as a group
  • Overturns Earlier Decision – Court decision overturned earlier verdict by lower court judge allowing Uber drivers to sue company in class action lawsuit
  • Complaint – Three Uber drivers complained against Uber in 2013 for classifying them as independent contractors instead of employees, which saved Uber from reimbursing them for gasoline, vehicle maintenance, and other expenses
