Human cloud, ride-sharing firm Uber will pay $1.3 million to settle a lawsuit in federal court in North Carolina that it misclassified drivers as independent contractors. Separately, a court in Ontario invalidated an arbitration agreement between Uber and its drivers in another misclassification lawsuit.

The class-action lawsuit in North Carolina includes all US drivers who opted out of arbitration agreements with Uber, which involves 5,200 drivers, according to court records.
