Forester Haynie filed a class-action lawsuit against Pizza Hut of Kokomo Inc. (Pizza Hut franchise in Indiana) for failing to pay their delivery drivers the federal minimum wage. The case is called Cook v. Pizza Hut of Kokomo et al., pending in the Federal Court in the District of Indiana.
The lawsuit alleges that instead of reimbursing delivery drivers for the costs of using their personal vehicles, the pizza franchise uses 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.
