Pacific Pie Delivery Drivers’ Lawsuit By Krystall Pratt Moves To Settlement Phase
The Pacific Pie Delivery Drivers Settlement 2021 stemmed from litigation raised against Pacific Pie after they purportedly did not provide their delivery drivers law-mandated work breaks.
Complainant Krystall Pratt contended that Pacific Pie Inc., along with other defendants Liberty Pizza LLC, and Shane Anderson, failed to follow the state of Washington’s workers’ law by not allowing delivery drivers to take their half-hour lunch breaks during their shifts. Moreover, delivery drivers were allegedly asked to do off-the-clock work.

As of writing, the court has not rendered its decision in favor of any of the parties involved in the case.
