Tennessee Delivery Driver Files Suit for Back Wages

A lawsuit has been filed against M3K, LLC and owner Dominic Pitarro on behalf of Christopher Reed, a former Domino’s delivery driver, and other similarly situated delivery drivers who worked for the Defendants. The company presently operates four Domino’s Pizza franchises in Tennessee. The lawsuit is alleging that the company uses flawed methods of reimbursement for delivery driver mileages. Additionally, delivery drivers are using personal vehicles to deliver food to customers and are responsible for the costs accrued. These costs are usually gasoline, maintenance and repairs, insurance, and depreciation. Consequently, delivery drivers are not left with much. These rates fall below any reasonable estimate of the expenses the delivery drivers incur. This is causing their wages to fall below the federal minimum wage. Additionally, the IRS increased the mileage rate to 62.5 cent per mile through December 2022. This comes as a response to rising gas prices.

The case is called Christopher Reed v. M3K, LLC and Dominic Pitarro, pending in Federal Court in the Eastern District of Tennessee.
