Michael Clute, Michael Mason, Clarence Adams and John Kahler filed a putative class action Complaint against V & J Employment Services, Inc. in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of New York, which is assigned case number 1:16-cv-772.
Who is in this case?
The lawsuit is brought on behalf of all individuals who have worked as a Pizza Hut pizza delivery driver for any V & J Employment franchise in the State New York at any time since June 28, 2010.
Claims in the lawsuit:
The lawsuit focuses on the fixed delivery fee customers are charged for pizza delivery. As alleged in the Complaint, customers reasonably believe that fee to be the driver’s gratuity when, in fact it is not. The company, instead, retain some or all-of-the fee.
Plaintiffs therefore assert V & J violated the New York Labor Law by unlawfully retaining these fees.
The Plaintiffs are represented by Douglas Lipsky of Bronson Lipsky LLP. You can contact Douglas Lipsky at 212.444.1024 if you have questions about this case.
On June 28, 2016, Plaintiffs filed the Complaint.
