  3. SF District Attorney Files Against DoorDash for Unfair Practices

    The San Francisco district attorney’s office has set its sights on the largest delivery service in the US, DoorDash. The city is suing the start-up food delivery service, alleging unfair business practices and worker misclassification. The worker misclassification accusation makes sense, California recently clarified state laws regarding worker classification (whether a worker is an employee or contractor). California is actually the first state in the nation to pass laws surrounding worker misclassification, and recently filed similar lawsuits against Uber and Lyft (in fact, as reported by The Verge, DoorDash is actually helping fund Uber & Lyft’s effort to stymie the law).

It’s been known for some time now that these services are all funded by venture capital, and rarely (if ever) turn a profit. That start-up mentality leads to a lot of pressure for growth, sometimes at the expense of the service’s restaurants and users. A new BuzzFeed News post is pointing a finger at GrubHub. The service has been hijacking restaurant’s online information, leading to GrubHub charging restaurants outrageous commissions for orders that really should have nothing to do with the delivery service.
