In 2018 Forester Haynie filed a Federal lawsuit against Round Rock Restaurant Group, LLC, and its owner. The lawsuit was styled Stone v. Round Rock Restaurant Group LLC. Following the production of arbitration agreements, Forester Haynie filed numerous arbitration demands, demanding that pizza delivery drivers working for Round Rock Restaurant Group, LLC are paid below the federal minimum wage in violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act.
The arbitration demands allege 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.
These demands have been filed with the American Arbitration Association, the largest private global provider of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) services in the world.
