Troutman Sanders and Pepper Hamilton have agreed to merge effective April 1, 2020.
The new firm – Troutman Pepper – will feature 1,100+ attorneys across 23 U.S. offices. Read more.
Tracey E. Diamond, of counsel with Pepper Hamilton, was quoted in the September 4, 2019 Associated Press article, "Restaurant Delivery Jobs Hold Their Own in the Uber Eats Age."
Tracey Diamond, an attorney who specializes in employment law, says restaurant delivery workers also have more legal protections because they are considered employees, not independent contractors. Late last year, for example, Domino's drivers in Ohio successfully sued franchise owners because they were being paid less than the government's baseline mileage reimbursement rates. Independent contractors wouldn't have that legal recourse, and they're not reimbursed for gas or vehicle maintenance.
