On Thursday in the Northern District of California, plaintiff Edmond Mesachi filed a complaint against delivery app Postmates Inc. for driver misclassification alleging that Postmates failed to pay minimum wage and provide other employment benefits. The plaintiff alleged that “(b)ecause Postmates controls the delivery drivers’ work; because the delivery drivers’ work is within the usual course of the company’s business; and because the delivery drivers are not independent businesses, the delivery drivers are Postmates’s employees under state and federal law.”
