The $100 million settlement in the independent contractor misclassification case against Uber could be in jeopardy, Bloomberg reports. Uber and US District judge Edward Chen may be at an impasse regarding Chen’s earlier order to nullify arbitration agreements signed by drivers. The settlement covers drivers in California and Massachusetts and is expected to have an impact on the gig economy going forward. Additionally, Law360 reports a group of Uber drivers in the Bay Area have urged the judge to deny the settlement, telling Chen that the proposed settlement puts drivers and passengers at risk by allowing the drivers to work outside limits put in place for regular taxi or limousine drivers.
