Improper Deductions from Pay
Lyft is paying just under $2 million to settle a claims in a class action alleging that the company violated laws and contract rights by taking a commission from drivers’ prime time premiums. The complaint also made another allegation, that Lyft classifies drivers in California as independent contractors when they are actually employees. The settlement does not resolve this issue.
Prudential Financial, Inc. has agreed to settle a class action alleging that it violated the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) in two ways. First, the complaint alleges that the company did not pay its agents overtime as required.
