In 2018 Forester Haynie filed a Federal lawsuit against Pizza Hut of San Antonio and its owner. The lawsuit was styled Autry v. Pizza Hut of San Antonio. Following a class notice period, Forester Haynie filed numerous consent forms on behalf of about 200 current and former delivery drivers. The case alleges that pizza delivery drivers working for Pizza Hut of San Antonio are paid below the federal minimum wage in violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act.
Furthermore, the lawsuit alleges that instead of reimbursing delivery drivers for the costs of using their personal vehicles, the pizza franchises use a flawed method to determine reimbursement for delivery drivers’ mileage. These rates fall below any reasonable estimate of the expenses the drivers incur, causing their wages to fall below the federal minimum wage.
Recently, FH has discovered that employees at numerous stores were also required to work “off-the-clock” meaning that they were either required to clock out and continue to working or were not paid for all their time. FH has recently filed a separate lawsuit in federal court for these violations and continues to investigate whether this practice is also companywide.
