    Had to agree to a new contract today. Looks like it replaces the 2015 contract. Make sure you opt out of arbitration. If I have time I'll look for any noticeable differences between the two and report back.

    On Tuesday, the Supreme Court handed a victory to American workers, ruling unanimously that independent contractors who work in transportation may not be forced into mandatory arbitration. (Justice Brett Kavanaugh, who joined the bench after argument, did not participate.) The decision is a...

    Evidently the arbitration clause is buried so deep in the agreement that a judge decided that it was unreasonable for a woman to be held to it, she didn't know what she was agreeing to...

    http://money.cnn.com/2018/05/15/technology/uber-eliminates-forced-arbitration/index.html Uber says it is taking steps to help reduce the culture of silence around sexual violence on its platform in the wake of a CNN investigation into sexual assaults and abuse by Uber drivers. The rideshare...

    If, like me, on or around April 10th, you agreed to a new Terms of Use with Lyft. From the day you accepted, you have 30 days to opt-out of arbitration with respect to Driver Claims. Must be in writing. It was a ***** to find in the Terms and I'm convinced when I accessed the Terms elsewhere...

    I was just contacted because I opted out. I doubt I'll see money, but I'm so ready to send them anything they want to squeeze Uber for cheating us drivers.

    I average around 2,000 miles/month with uberlyft. I pay about $30/month extra for ride-sharing coverage. If uberlyft's cost to insure me is the same, they pay 1.5¢ per mile to insure me. Their cost is probably FAR lower, maybe even .5¢ - half a penny per mile! That's probably their biggest...

    Judge Alsup referred the Uber trade secret theft case to a US District Attorney for a possible criminal investigation. It's not clear which DA, if any, will pursue a criminal investigation. I imagine if that happens then all the records that Uber is withholding in the Waymo vs Uber case will be...

    Hey, I'd like a list of people here who have opted out of Uber's binding arbitration clause. If you don't know what it is then you probably didn't opt out. There are many posts on this website about it even instructions on how to opt out but, it must be done within 30 days of signing up or...

    When I first signed up this message was everywhere. Obt out of arbitration. A simple Internet search or search of old threads will tell you how. Kind of sad that I'm one of the longest active members here. If anyone is interested in making a difference there should be a link on my profile page.

    I have't driven for months and just logged in to the app and I can't log on until I agree to a non-arbitration agreement where I agree to not join any class action law suits against them. I've already opted out a yer ago. WTF. Can anybody shed light on this development or share a link to a...

    Well I estimated that Uber would take till after the super bowl to get my background check done. The waitlisting began on 1/18. Figured I'd be out 3 weeks and wondered how Uber expected drivers to be able to absorb the reality of having no income for nearly a month. Now it's Feb. 23rd and...

    Even if you are beyond the 30 days from the December 11, 2015 acceptance of Uber's new terms, please send an email to [email protected] with your name & state asking to "opt out" of Uber's new arbitration terms. The arbitration process most often favors the big guy. Attorney advice: Do this...

    Hello Jax drivers! This past month Uber was smacked down by a judge in a case that they had pending in a court case elsewhere. The judge had told them that the language in their contract was illegal and unenforceable so as a result, exactly a month ago Uber issued a new driver contractual...
