Former Milwaukee Uber driver sues company

Posted on July 5, 2016 9:33 am under Overtime Law and Minimum Wage Violations

Lamont Lathan, a former Uber driver in the Milwaukee area, is suing the ride-hailing company in federal court, seeking overtime pay, tips, and other expenses on behalf of all current and former Wisconsin drivers.

Lathan is asking the court to classify Uber drivers as employees instead of the independent contractors Uber says they are. The suit lists seven causes of action against Uber: breach of contract, conversion, fraud, misrepresentation, tortious interference with prospective business relations, unfair competition, unjust enrichment, and violations of Wisconsin minimum wage and labor law. Lathan’s attorney, Brian Mahany, says that there may be as many as 10,000 drivers impacted by the lawsuit.
