Versa Logistics Truck Drivers Misclassification Settlement Notes
- Robins, et al. v. Versa Logistics LLC, et al.
- Case No. BC644321
- Pending in California Superior Court, County of Los Angeles
In December 2016, plaintiff Michael Robins Jr. and others filed this class action lawsuit alleging Versa Logistics and Cathay Logistics willfully misclassified its truck drivers as independent contractors in order to avoid paying them proper wages they would have otherwise received in violation of California labor laws.
Specifically, the Versa Logistics Truck Drivers Misclassification class action lawsuit alleges that the company also failed to pay its current and former truck drivers in California on an hourly basis for their time spent taking rest periods and on their non-driving tasks. Additionally, the complaint states Versa Logistics did not provide rest breaks or meal periods and did not reimburse truck drivers for gas mileage, insurance coverage, and personal cell phone expenses incurred.
Versa Logistics denies liability and the allegations in the complaint, asserting they have fully complied with California wage and hour laws in classifying their truck drivers. However, in order to avoid the risk of trial, agreed to settle for $925,000. Complete details about the case and settlement are provided on the Versa Logistics Truck Driver Misclassification Settlement website.
Class members who wish to exclude themselves, opt-out, or dispute the terms of the Versa Logistics Truck Driver Misclassification Settlement must do so by February 17 2018. Class members who wish to receive money under the settlement do not need to take any action.
