What Is Rover independent contractor misclassification $18M Class Action Settlement?
Dog-walking app Rover agreed to pay $18 million as part of a settlement to resolve claims it misclassified California workers as independent contractors instead of employees. The name of the case is Sportsman v. A Place for Rover Inc. d/b/a Rover, Case No. 19-cv-03053-WHO, in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California.
What Is This Class Action All About?
According to the class action lawsuit, Rover classified California workers as independent contractors despite these workers qualifying for employee classification under California labor laws. As a result of this purported misclassification, workers were allegedly denied fair wages and other benefits.
