delivery driver delivering pizza

Another pizza delivery driver lawsuit has been brought by former Tennessee pizza delivery driver Jevonte Dantzler against A. Murgas , LLC and owner Antonio Murgas. The company presently operates several Domino’s Pizza franchises in Tennessee. The lawsuit alleges that the company uses flawed methods of reimbursement for pizza delivery driver mileage. Delivery drivers use their personal vehicles to deliver food to customers and are responsible for the costs accrued. These costs include gasoline, maintenance and repairs, insurance, and depreciation. Consequently, pizza delivery drivers are not left with much because these vehicle costs cut into the wages they earn. Further, the mileage reimbursement rates provided to the drivers fall below any reasonable estimate of the expenses the pizza delivery drivers incur and are below IRS mileage reimbursement rate, causing their wages to fall below the federal minimum wage.

The case is called Dantzler v. A. Murgas LLC, pending in federal court in the Middle District of Tennessee.
