A lawsuit filed on behalf of two Minnesota-based Domino’s drivers last year has turned into a class action suit, according to the StarTribune.com.
The plaintiffs say Domino’s failure to reimburse travel expenses leaves drivers with less than minimum wage. Judge Donovan Frank approved the lawsuit for class action status.
From the story:
The ruling last week by Judge Donovan Frank means the suit can potentially cover 22,000 current and former Domino's drivers in nearly every state in the country, according to Nichols Kaster, the Minneapolis law firm representing the plaintiffs. ...
In court filings, Michigan-based Domino's has countered that the drivers' circumstances vary too widely to allow the case to be certified as class-action, among them type of car, routes, miles driven and geographic region.
