Uber drivers earn more per ride when passengers use higher service levels, which are based largely on vehicle type. Uber BlackSUV is the highest available vehicle service offered by Uber. Qualifying to offer this service requires purchasing or leasing an expensive vehicle that is on Uber’s approved list. In September 2019, Uber abruptly changed its vehicle eligibility requirements for Uber BlackSUV vehicles, cutting off drivers who were using those vehicles from earning a higher rate of pay. Many drivers suffered a significant loss in income as a result of this unfair busines practice. In this class action lawsuit, plaintiffs contend that the company refused to honor its representations that certain vehicles were approved for the selective Uber BlackSUV platform, bringing about actual damages and harm to plaintiffs, including a significant loss of income to affected drivers.
The law firm Francis Mailman Soumilas, P.C. believes strongly in protecting the rights of consumers. If large companies such as Uber continue to engage in unfair business practices without restraint, many more hard-working Americans will be harmed and restricted from earning the monthly income they need to make ends meet. This alleged conduct by Uber is a breach of contract, resulting in a significant loss of income to affected drivers.
