Domino’s hit with lawsuit

Domino’s Pizza Enterprises are facing a class action lawsuit over allegations that they have been systematically underpaying workers. The lawsuit is being funded by a global litigation funding provider, Therium Litigation Finance. Claims being made by the law firm Phi Finney McDonald, allege that Domino’s paid their in-store and delivery drivers less than what they should have received between June of 2013 and January of 2018.

Phi Finney McDonald said that Domino’s purposefully told their Australian franchisees under the inapplicable employment agreements. Allegations also say that casual workers were not paid a 25 percent loading bonus, as well as penalty rates for working after-hours, weekends, or public holidays.

If this all comes to fruition, Domino’s workers will be owed the difference between the rates they received, and the employment agreements.

Domino’s has responded by saying that they take the proper payment of their workers very seriously and will action any amendments after reviewing.
