Forester Haynie has filed a lawsuit on behalf of former pizza delivery driver, Melissa Stansbury, in Pennsylvania for violations of the Fair Labor Standards Act. The owner of Barrick Enterprises, Inc., Todd Barrick, presently operates seven Domino’s Pizza stores in Pennsylvania, including the store Stansbury worked at. The lawsuit alleges that the Domino’s Pizza franchise, Barrick Enterprises, Inc., uses flawed methods of reimbursement for pizza delivery driver mileage and does not properly reimburse delivery drivers for using their personal vehicles to deliver pizzas and other food items. The costs the drivers incur while on the job include gasoline, maintenance and repairs, insurance, and depreciation. Consequently, and based on a reasonable estimate of the expenses the drivers incur, the drivers’ wages fell below the federal minimum wage. The current mileage reimbursement rate set by the IRS is 62.5 cents and is estimated to remain at this rate into the new year.
The case is called Stansbury v. Barrick Enterprises, Inc. et al, pending in the Middle District of Pennsylvania.
