What’s Going On Exactly?
Over the past several years, a number of logistics companies have cropped up across the country to help meet the growing demand for Amazon delivery service. These companies – known as “delivery service providers” – contract with Amazon to hire drivers, dispatchers and other employees to deliver goods on behalf of Amazon.com and its affiliates and can be formed for an investment of as little as $10,000.
It has been alleged that while Amazon provides delivery service providers with vehicles, professional uniforms, and delivery training, it’s failing to offer the guidance needed to ensure the companies are paying their workers properly.
As a result, lawsuits are now being filed claiming that some delivery service providers are breaking wage and hour laws – and that it’s mostly Amazon’s fault.
What Are the Lawsuits Claiming Amazon Did Wrong?
The lawsuits claim that even though these drivers are employed by third-party service providers, Amazon still has a legal obligation to ensure these people are being paid properly.
In fact, it has been alleged that Amazon e-mailed some of its delivery service providers telling them to stop paying their workers on a day-rate basis and to start paying them an hourly wage plus overtime. This, the suits claim, shows that Amazon knew it had a duty to ensure these delivery associates were getting paid in accordance with the law but choose instead to attempt to shield itself from liability for wage violations by hiding behind its third-party providers.
Not every company that was formed to deliver packages for Amazon is violating the law.
But because some of these delivery service providers are being run by first-time business owners, it’s possible that these people may be unfamiliar with the ins and outs of wage and hour law and are unknowingly cheating their drivers out of proper pay.
Some wage issues that delivery associates have complained about include:
Working overtime without time-and-a-half pay
Working beyond their scheduled shifts without additional compensation
Working off the clock
Working through lunch breaks without pay
Not getting proper rest breaks
Getting paid a flat day rate that fails to include overtime compensation
How Could a Lawsuit Help?
A lawsuit could help Amazon delivery drivers get back any of the wages they should have been paid but weren’t.
Furthermore, it could help ensure that Amazon properly instructs delivery service providers on how to pay their employees.
