DoorDash must face a Fair Labor Standards Act lawsuit accusing it of failing to pay drivers minimum wage, a California federal judge said during a remote hearing on Thursday, denying the app-based food delivery service’s motion to dismiss after determining the drivers adequately pled that their fuel expenses outpaced their wages. U. S. District Judge Edward M. Chen also emphasized that because DoorDash has been classifying couriers, or Dashers, as independent contractors since its inception, it’s fair to infer that the company did not give advance notice to workers that it would be using a “tip credit” practice, which lets employers pay.
