Uber, Lyft Drivers’ Wage Claims May Affect On-Demand Business Model, Attorneys Say, Bloomberg BNA ft. Tad Devlin
Tad Devlin, partner in KDV’s San Francisco office, is quoted in a Bloomberg BNA article published on April 8, 2015. In the article, Tad discusses the significance of the lawsuits currently faced by Uber Technologies Inc. and Lyft Inc. Both suits involve the potential misclassification of the companies’ drivers as independent contractors.
Tad Devlin, an attorney with Kaufman Dolowich & Voluck in San Francisco who focuses his practice on the sharing economy, said people are looking to San Francisco because companies like Uber, Lyft, Airbnb, and Yelp are headquartered there. “Here you have class actions against two of the hottest companies on the face of the earth right now,” Devlin said. “Other businesses will be watching what happens in these cases.”
