Our California employment lawyers filed a representative action against Amazon on behalf of California Flex drivers for California labor code penalties. The lawsuit says Amazon intentionally misclassified California Flex drivers to avoid paying them overtime and to deny them other benefits of California labor law. The California penalty for independent contractor misclassification is up to $25,000 per worker (i.e., $25K per Flex driver). The lawsuit also alleges that because California Flex drivers should have been classified as employees, Amazon’s treatment of Flex drivers violated California meal and rest break law by failing to provide paid rest breaks and unpaid meal breaks; violated California overtime law by not providing overtime pay for hours worked beyond 8 per day or 40 per week; violated California paystub laws by not providing wage statements with information on hours worked, hourly pay rates, and expense reimbursements; and violated California final paycheck law by failing to provide last-day compensation to Flex drivers that it terminated from the program.

Our attorneys are also investigating more broadly whether other Amazon workers are experiencing unfair pay or working conditions, and whether a broader Amazon employee class action lawsuit is warranted.
