Food-delivery app company Waitr faces second federal lawsuit from drivers claiming low pay

The food-delivery app company Waitr has been hit with a second lawsuit by current and former drivers, alleging the Lafayette-based company violated federal labor laws by not paying them minimum wages.

The federal lawsuit was filed last week by driver Autumn Montgomery in U.S. District Court in New Orleans for unpaid minimum wages, overtime pay, damages, penalties, attorney fees, expenses, and injunctive relief under the Fair Labor Standards Act and state law.

Montgomery claims she “worked 28.78 hours and drove her automobile 279 miles or more delivering food to customers,” according to the lawsuit. After deducting auto expenses, Montgomery’s suit states, she received a net sum amount less than minimum wage, or about $1.97 an hour.
