In November 2019, Attorney Roosevelt Nesmith filed complaints in the U.S. District Court in New Jersey, claiming that ride-share companies, Lyft and Uber, failed to pay minimum wage, did not pay overtime, and did not reimburse business expenses for their drivers. Also included in the complaints was that the ride-share companies violated labor laws by intentionally misclassifying workers in order to get around paying workers minimum wage and overtime. The complaints was filed on behalf of Renier Gonzalez, a Jersey City resident that has worked for Lyft since 2017. Attorney Nesmith argues that the companies’ business models boosts their profits by not paying the legally required wages to their drivers.
Currently, Attorney Nesmith has drivers from New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, and Delaware as plaintiffs for the Uber case.
