Drivers from Uber are suing the ride-hailing company over alleged violations of California’s traffic law.
The lawsuit was filed on Thursday by Uber drivers in Los Angeles Superior Court.
It claims Uber drivers are not legally entitled to compensation for any alleged traffic violations they have been involved in over the past two years.
Uber says it has more than 5,000 active drivers in California and it has no plans to hire drivers from the lawsuit.
Uber drivers say Uber’s drivers do not receive a “fair, reasonable and nondiscriminatory” wage and are often paid “far less than the minimum wage and overtime” they were working when the traffic violation occurred.
Uber also said the drivers were not properly compensated for any damages, but Uber is appealing the case.
The case comes as Uber is facing a series of high-profile incidents of drivers and passengers being injured or killed by Uber vehicles in recent months.
