Teamsters: XPO spends $3.5 Billion in wages stolen from California truckers to buy French company
- In March 2014, the California Division of Labor Standards Enforcement (DLSE) issued findings in the wage claims of seven individual drivers from Pacer San Diego, all of whom it found to be employees who had been illegally misclassified as independent contractors. The DLSE awarded these drivers a combined $2.2 million. Pacer appealed these seven awards to the California Superior Court, San Diego and the court has filed a tentative ruling upholding the DLSE's decision.
- Pacer Cartage is also facing a class action lawsuit due to the company's alleged willful misclassification of employees. This lawsuit involves about 662 drivers; the estimated liability amounts to more than $5 million.
- Additionally, three misclassification lawsuits that name 150 drivers as plaintiffs have been filed against XPO Logistics' companies. All of these cases remain pending.
