Unpaid Tips

Back of Jacket Saying "Team DoorDash"

Tipped workers are among the lowest-paid in the US economy. When consumers pay a tip at a restaurant or to a delivery driver, they trust that that money goes directly to the worker. However, the complaint for this class action alleges that tips entered into the DoorDash, Inc. app do not go to the drivers who bring their deliveries but to DoorDash, in whole or in part.
