Uber Technologies Inc. will pay $1.3 million to settle Fair Labor Standards Act claims from more than 5,000 drivers who aren’t bound by arbitration agreements and alleged the ride-hailing giant misclassified them as independent contractors instead of employees, according to a North Carolina federal court filing.

Given the risks of continuing with litigation, a $1.3 million settlement is substantial, the drivers said.

The plaintiffs are represented by Napoli Shkolnik PLLC among others.
