PizzaLawsuits.com Advises Pizza Delivery Drivers of Their Various Rights, Including Receiving Reasonable Cost Reimbursements for their Vehicles

ST. LOUIS, MO / ACCESSWIRE / April 7, 2015 / Paul McInnes LLP in Kansas City, Missouri and Weinhaus & Potashnick in St. Louis, Missouri have obtained recoveries for tens of thousands of pizza delivery drivers across the country. They have launched an easy-to-navigate website for pizza delivery drivers to learn more about these cases and their rights. The web address is www.pizzalawsuits.com.

The new website, www.pizzalawsuits.com, advises pizza delivery drivers of their right to receive reasonable vehicle cost reimbursements, their right to receive the minimum wage after deducting unreimbursed vehicle expenses, and ongoing litigation to enforce these rights.

Paul McInnes LLP and Weinhaus & Potashnick have collectively prosecuted numerous lawsuits alleging that pizza delivery companies fail to reimburse their delivery drivers sufficiently for the vehicle expenses they incur on the job. While the IRS and AAA believe that the average cost of driving is at least 57 1/2 cents per mile, the pizza companies typically reimburse at a rate of about half of that amount, and often less. Such under-reimbursements result in federal and state minimum wage violations.


For example, if a pizza delivery driver is paid the federal minimum wage of $7.25 per hour, he is un-reimbursed for 25 cents worth of vehicle expenses each mile, and he drives an average of 15 miles per hour on the job. Thus, his net pay is only $3.50 per hour ($7.25 – ($.25 under-reimbursed vehicle expenses per mile x 15 miles per hour)). Even if that delivery driver is paid at the highest state minimum wage, his net wages will still fall below both the federal and state minimum wage after deducting un-reimbursed vehicle expenses.

Paul McInnes LLP and Weinhaus & Potashnick have also successfully recovered compensation for pizza delivery drivers who were paid the tipped minimum wage, which is less than the full minimum wage, for time spent performing non-tipped duties. Non-tipped duties include such tasks as taking orders by telephone, making pizzas and cleaning the shop. Pizza shops must pay the higher full minimum wage for all time spent performing such non-tipped duties when non-tipped duties encompass at least 20 percent of the work time. Typically, pizza delivery drivers spend at least 40 percent of their time working in their pizza shops.

These firms have also recovered compensation for pizza delivery drivers and other pizza shop employees under New York law for the cost of purchasing required pants and shoes and for the weekly cost of cleaning their uniforms.

The new website, www.pizzalawsuits.com, clearly and simply explains to pizza delivery drivers their important legal right to receive a fair day’s pay in exchange for a fair day’s work, and their important legal right to be free from common pay violations.

How much pestering by you did it take for them to create this website?

The website, pizzalawsuits.com, is accessible again. I am in contact with an individual (that is having difficulties registering for this website) that claims to be working with Mark Potashnick, one of the attorneys associated with that site. I asked this person to contact Mark and find out why the pizzalawsuits.com was unreachable. I got an email from this individual a few minutes ago informing me that the pizzalawsuits.com is again reachable (it is reachable by me now).
