The ABA Journal reports one of the first drivers to file what has become a class action against Uber Technologies made a filing Monday in opposition to a $100 million settlement. Drivers in the suit, first filed in 2013, contend they were misclassified as independent contractors when they were actually employees, and Uber doesn’t pay them enough for mileage and expenses. Plaintiff Douglas O’Connor, one of the first to file, said he felt “utterly betrayed” by class counsel Shannon Liss-Riordan and that the settlement is not in the best interest of Uber drivers.
