NY Attorney General Letitia James Announces Settlements with Uber & Lyft
A message from The Black Car Fund
Drivers Benefits’ mission is to help drivers for Black Car services* in New York State get the benefits they deserve by working with the Independent Drivers Guild and The Black Car Fund.
The New York State Attorney General recently announced settlement agreements with Uber and Lyft requiring them to pay back a combined $328 million in backpay for withheld taxes and fees. We want to take this opportunity to be clear that The Black Car Fund is not involved in this settlement in any way. The Black Car Fund charges passengers — not drivers — with a surcharge that pays for benefits for drivers. Drivers are never charged a fee by The Black Car Fund.
