Late last week a class action suit brought by UPS delivery drivers against their employer was settled for $12.8 million. The suit alleges that the drivers were misclassified as independent contractors and wrongfully denied benefits and overtime as a result. At least 83% of the $12.8 million is to go to the approximately 660 employees. The plaintiffs are expected to request about $2.02 million in costs and fees. A copy of the complaint is available here.
