U.S. Judge OKs Class-Action Against Domino’s Pizza

According to Reuters, “A Minnesota federal judge granted class-action status to Domino’s Pizza Inc drivers who sued the chain for failing to sufficiently reimburse them for delivery costs, causing them to be paid less than the minimum wage.”

“The case was first brought on behalf of two Domino’s drivers in Minnesota. A similar case is pending in the federal court in Brooklyn, New York. U.S. District Judge Donovan Frank’s ruling covers thousands of drivers in states other than California and New York from March 4, 2006 to the present. Domino’s said in court papers there was too much variation among the drivers in vehicles, routes, mileage and geographic regions involved to warrant grouping them together as a class.”
