In May 2023, three Amazon DSP drivers in Colorado filed a proposed class action lawsuit against Amazon for not paying drivers for missed 10-minute rest periods that are required by Colorado law. The drivers also allege that Amazon uses location tracking and surveillance to implement pace-of-work requirements that prevent drivers from pausing to take care of even basic human needs, like using the bathroom. The lawsuit describes how Amazon drivers are frequently required to urinate in bottles to satisfy Amazon’s delivery metrics. The drivers are represented by Towards Justice and their co-counsel from Public Justice and Terrell Marshall Law Group PLLC.
The court has not yet decided if the case can proceed as a class action, but if you are a member of the proposed class then you don’t need to take any other action to join the case. If the court certifies the class alleged in the complaint, then you will be part of the class and covered by the lawsuit without having to take further action.
