Past Postmates Class Action Lawsuits

A previous Postmates class action lawsuit alleged that Postmates workers were misclassified as independent contractors. As employees, the class action lawsuit said, Postmates fleet members are entitled to earn minimum wage, overtime, in addition to all tips and reimbursement for business expenses, such as gas.

In 2017, Postmates agreed to settle the lawsuit for $8.75 million. Under the settlement, class members would be paid more money if they lived in a state with more favorable labor laws. Class members in California received a multiplier of 2; Massachusetts a multiplier of 3; NY a multiplier of 1.5; and D.C. a multiplier of 1.5.

Another Postmates class action settled in 2019. That lawsuit, on behalf of plaintiffs who opted out of Postmates arbitration clause, settled for $85,000. The class size was likely small because most Postmates drivers are subject to a binding arbitration clause that requires them to waive their right to participate in a class action lawsuit.
