If you were denied access to the Uber Eats platform as a delivery person in New York City due to a criminal background check between October 24, 2015, and July 28, 2021, you may be eligible for compensation from a class action settlement. This settlement aims to resolve allegations that Uber Eats failed to provide required notices and used a flawed background check process, which Uber denies. This article provides detailed information about the settlement, including who benefits, potential awards, important dates, and how to claim your award.


Who Benefits?: Individuals who were denied access to the Uber Eats platform as delivery persons in New York City due to the results of a criminal background check.

How much can I get?: The amount you may receive depends on the settlement's terms and the number of claimants.


Important Dates


  • Fairness Hearing: The Court will hold a fairness hearing to decide whether to approve the settlement.
  • Deadline to File a Claim: The official settlement website does not specify a claim deadline, indicating that further details may be forthcoming.


Identifying Eligible Class Members


Class Members are those who approved a criminal background check by Uber for delivering with Uber Eats in New York City within the specified dates and were denied access based on that check. There are two groups of Class Members:


  • Group One Class Members have serious convictions likely to be job-related but were still entitled to certain information regarding Uber’s decision.
  • Group Two Class Members have convictions less likely to be deemed job-related.


There are no specified exclusions from the class.


Understanding Settlement Awards


The settlement provides financial compensation to Class Members. The exact award amounts and any potential schedule for payment will be determined based on the settlement agreement and the number of valid claims.


  • Tier 1: Group One Class Members
  • Tier 2: Group Two Class Members


Services Affected by the Settlement


The settlement pertains to individuals who used the Uber Eats platform for delivery services in New York City and were impacted by the criminal background check process.


Is Proof Required to Claim the Reward?


While the official settlement website does not explicitly state the need for proof, claimants typically must verify their eligibility for settlement awards.


How to Claim Your Award


No claim form is required to benefit from the settlement. Class members who do not exclude themselves will automatically receive a settlement payment. To claim an award, affected individuals should provide their current mailing address to the Settlement Administrator. This ensures that they will receive any settlement payment they are entitled to.


Settlement Amount Insights


The settlement amount has not been disclosed on the official settlement website. Therefore, details on the calculation of the settlement amount or any proration are not available.


The Basis for the Class Action Settlement


Plaintiffs filed a class action lawsuit against Uber for allegedly not complying with the New York City Human Rights Law regarding criminal background checks for potential delivery persons. Uber denies these allegations, and the settlement has not yet received final court approval.
