Pizza Hut drivers sue claiming they were stiffed
SCHENECTADY, NEW YORK- Pizza Hut was sued by two former drivers who claim the company's delivery fees illegally cut into their tips.
The two claimed in federal court Pizza Hut violates New York labor laws by keeping delivery fees as a profit for themselves. The lawsuit contends the mandatory delivery fees give customers the impression they are part of the tip but the drivers receive no portion of the fees. Lawyers for William Lewis and Samantha Crawford are seeking a class-action lawsuit that would consider all delivery fees for Pizza Hut.
Pizza Hut didn't immediately comment.
