On May 11, 2016, Kimble Law filed a lawsuit on behalf of two delivery drivers at America’s Pizza Company, LLC, a franchisee who owns over 120 Pizza Hut restaurants nationwide. The plaintiffs allege that they were denied proper minimum wage and overtime payments by the Louisiana-based employer. In addition to making claims for themselves, the plaintiffs also seek to represent their fellow delivery drivers, who they believe have been subjected to the same pay policies as they have.
Specifically, the plaintiffs allege that they were paid “tip credit minimum wage,” however they were not properly reimbursed for the expenses they incurred while making deliveries to Pizza Hut customers. By failing to reimburse their drivers who incurred expenses for their benefit, the plaintiffs allege that America’s Pizza Company has paid them less than the minimum wage and overtime payments required by law.
