Delivery Drivers & Couriers

The Fair Labor Standards Act (“FLSA”) requires certain employers to pay their employees overtime compensation for all hours worked in excess of forty in a workweek at a rate not less than one and one-half times their regular rate of pay. Employees are generally assumed to be entitled to the rights and protections of the FLSA unless the employer is able to establish that such employees are not covered by the act because the employee fits within one of the several statutory exemptions.

Many employees who work as Delivery Drivers or Couriers are entitled to overtime compensation. Employees in this industry are often improperly classified as independent contractors or are not properly paid overtime wages. Many times, Delivery Drivers and Couriers are paid a piece rate per delivery or a day rate per route and are not paid, or improperly paid, overtime wages for hours worked over forty in a workweek.
