Hunter Shkolnik Quoted in The National Law Journal
January 11, 2016 | Napoli Shkolnik News
Napoli Shkolnik PLLC filed a class action lawsuit against UBER Technologies Inc. and Raiser LLC alleging UBER withheld tips earned by drivers and incorrectly classified the drivers as independent contractors to avoid reimbursing drivers for costs associated with driving for UBER. As per Ms. Bronstad’s article in The National Law Journal, Hunter has filed nearly half the suits, moved on Dec. 1 to coordinate all the cases into a multidistrict litigation proceeding. The U.S. Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation has scheduled the matter for its Jan. 28 hearing in Fort Myers, Florida.
“We felt it was appropriate for those drivers in other states to have the same protections that they’re moving forward in California on,” Shkolnik said. He said he wouldn’t be surprised if more cases got filed in every state Uber is operating.
“We’re just getting contacted by drivers like crazy,” he said. “There are a lot of very upset drivers.”
