Case Details

  • Case Status: Pending
  • Docket Number: 22-3561
  • Category: Labor Relations


Plaintiff and his amici “Cleveland Jobs With Justice” (“CJWJ”) argue that employers should be limited to using the actual costs or the IRS standard business mileage rate (the “IRS rate”) when reimbursing a delivery driver for vehicle-related expenses.

February 21, 2023

The Restaurant Law Center filed an amicus brief, arguing that the District Court properly resolved this case by correctly finding that for an employer to reimburse sufficiently its delivery driver employees for vehicle-related costs under the FLSA the employer may either reimburse the drivers’ actual costs or reimburse drivers using a reasonable approximation of the actual vehicle costs associated with making deliveries.
