Case Summary

In October 2014, Plaintiffs, represented by Bryan Schwartz Law, sued Carey Limousine and its New York affiliate alleging the drivers were misclassified as independent contractors, were not properly reimbursed for expenses, and other associated allegations.

In March 2015, following several months of discussions, a deposition of the Chief Executive Officer of Defendants, the exchange of documents and data, and negotiations through counsel experienced in these types of cases, the parties prepared extensive briefing and attended a mediation conducted by Mediator Mark Rudy (one of the nation’s most experienced mediators in settling wage and hour class actions). Counsel for the parties has debated extensively the claims’ and defenses’ merits and other issues relevant to evaluating this matter, both through the mediator and bilaterally. The parties reached a conditional, $2.1 million settlement for the New York drivers after six months of additional negotiations, in September 2015, which received preliminary court approval in April 2016.
