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 else you are bound to arbitrating with Uber through a third-party agency and cannot take them to court.

This also means that if there is a class-action in New Jersey you cannot join... but like I said unless you were one of those few drivers who led the contract and opted out.

I also gave a second opportunity for people to other contract in December 2015 when the judge and California made them redo the contract.

So if you didn't opt out keep in mind in the future they change anything in the contract and ask you to agree read the contract and then you will be able to opt out because the agreement has changed and you are agreeing to a new agreement.

Mini drivers that I have spoken to get confused easily and frustrated on this legal mumbo jumbo don't care about opting out but when there becomes a large settlement for New Jersey drivers and about how they will feel then. Even if most of the class gets only $500 bucks each... its still something...

Like for those Uber drivers who drive a new/almost new BMW or a Benz... thats a car payment:p:D

I recently opted out. Given all of the hoops and hurdles and apparent money they are skimming off everyone, I did not want to be bound. This would be a smart move for others to take.
