New York Drivers File Suit Against Uber

Posted on June 2, 2016

Uber is facing another class action lawsuit, this time coming from the New York Taxi Workers Alliance.

The suit, which could include more than 5,000 Uber drivers, was filed Thursday and alleges the drivers have been misclassified as independent contractors, rather than employees. The lawsuit comes on the same day a San Francisco judge is holding a hearing to decide whether to accept the $100 million settlement agreement between Uber and two other class-action lawsuits arguing similar claims.
