Pizza Hut Delivery Driver Lawsuit
Stueve Siegel Hanson LLP and Weinhaus & Potashnick have filed a lawsuit on behalf of delivery drivers against Pizza Hut, Inc., claiming that Pizza Hut failed to fully reimburse them for automobile expenses that have reduced their net wages below the federal minimum wage. The case is known as Smith v. Pizza Hut, Inc.
On April 21, 2012, the United States District Court for the District of Colorado conditionally certified the claims as a Fair Labor Standards Act ("FLSA") collective action. A Notice explaining the lawsuit and how workers can join was sent to all current and former delivery drivers who were employed by Pizza Hut at any time from February 23, 2009 to April 21, 2012, and roughly 6,000 Pizza Hut delivery drivers have joined the case. The time to join the case has now expired. We are working on the "discovery" phase of the lawsuit, obtaining information to prepare the case for trial. No trial date has been set, but we anticipate the case will be ready for trial in 2014.
