Uber has reportedly reached a settlement agreement with its drivers in California and Massachusetts, The Wall Street Journal reported.
The $100 million settlement effectively staves off what could have been a massive legal fight over the employment classification of about 385,000 drivers in the two states.
According to The Journal, the settlement will allow Uber to continue recognising drivers as independent contractors, not employees, and pay the drivers $100 million.
The company will also be required to update its driver deactivation policies.
