What Is franchisee violation of labor laws Class Action Settlement?
Bacus Foods Corp. fails to adequately reimburse delivery drivers at its Jimmy John’s franchise stores in Nebraska, Kansas, Colorado, and Arizona for their delivery-related and other work-related expenses, a new class action lawsuit alleges. The name of the case is Holder, et al. v. Bacus Foods Corp., et al., Case No. 2:23-cv-00763, in the U.S. District Court for the District of Arizona.
What Is This Class Action All About?
Plaintiff Michael Holder claims delivery drivers at Bacus-owned Jimmy John’s sandwich shop franchise locations are not paid “the legally mandated minimum wage for all hours worked.”
Holder claims the Bacus Jimmy John’s franchisees are guilty of unjust enrichment and violating the Fair Labor Standards Act, the Nebraska Wage and Hour Act, and the Nebraska Wage Payment and Collection Act.
Plaintiff is demanding a jury trial and requesting declaratory relief along with an award of damages, including, among other things, unpaid wages, liquidated damages, and unreimbursed expenses.
In another case involving a sandwich restaurant, a lawsuit was filed against Seven Out LLC — the owner of three Jersey Mike’s franchises — over claims revolving around retaliation and sexual harassment.
Holder argues the Bacus Jimmy John’s locations do not reimburse their delivery drivers “at a reasonable approximation of the drivers’ vehicle expenses,” despite requiring them to “maintain and pay for operable, safe, and legally compliant automobiles.”
“By failing to adequately reimburse for their delivery drivers’ vehicle expenses, the Bacus Jimmy John’s stores have unlawfully withheld and/or diverted wages from the delivery drivers,” the Jimmy John’s class action states.
Holder wants to represent a nationwide class of all current and former delivery drivers employed at a Bacus Jimmy John’s store that was owned, operated and controlled by the defendants during the last three years, and a Nebraska class during the last four years.
