On December 21st, 2020, our firm filed an application to be authorized to bring a class action against UberEats. This application seeks to obtain a refund for the illegal delivery fees paid by consumers in Québec who placed an order on the UberEats mobile app or online at www.ubereats.com.
UberEats offers a food delivery service all around the world, through their mobile application and online.
They frequently offer promotional codes to their users by email or by mobile notification.
Our client noticed that delivery fees of 3.99 $ are automatically added during purchase on the UberEats mobile app, fees which were never announced prior to checking out.
The Consumer Protection Act imposes strict obligations to merchants to make sure that consumers have all the required information before buying any goods or service.
Under section 224 c) of this act, merchants cannot charge, for goods or services, a higher price than that advertised. Therefore, the advertised price must include the total amount the consumer must pay for the goods or services, except for applicable taxes, and make sure to specifically single out each underlying fee, including the delivery fees.
All persons residing in Québec who made a purchase on the UberEats mobile app or online at www.ubereats.com and paid a higher price than that advertised.
Applications filed to the Court
Current state of the case
Awaiting authorization from a Superior court judge.
