Class action launched against Pizza Huts across Canada
Class action alleges that Pizza Hut misclassifies delivery drivers and fails to provide basic employment benefits
Goldblatt Partners and Monkhouse Law have filed a proposed class action against PH Canada Company and its franchisees who operate over four hundred Pizza Hut store locations across Canada (collectively “Pizza Hut Canada”).
The proposed class action alleges that Pizza Hut Canada has misclassified its delivery drivers as ‘independent contractors” and has failed to provide them with the wages and benefits they are entitled to under employment standards legislation.
More information about the case can be found at the Pizza Hut Canada class action website.
The Toronto Star is reporting on the new proposed class action here, and spoke to GP’s Josh Mandryk:
“Food delivery is difficult work for low pay. Drivers like Mr. Marinov have been on the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic, delivering Canadians’ food and making it possible for many of us to stay safely at home,” said Josh Mandryk at Goldblatt Partners, one of the Toronto-based labour law firms spearheading the lawsuit.
