Uber will refund commissions charged in error in New York

Uber has discounted its New York drivers a higher-than-expected commission over the past two-and-a-half years and will now have to pay them a millionaire compensation, The Wall Street Journal reported today.

The newspaper said that the terms set at the national level in November 2014 indicated that Uber would have to deduct a commission, which is usually 25%, after deducting taxes and administrative expenses.

But, by mistake, he was applying that percentage to the total price, including taxes and an allowance for an accident compensation fund.

The company confirmed to the Journal that it will return that money, plus interest, which means an average of about 900 dollars per driver. Although he did not specify the total amount, the newspaper estimates that it will be about 45 million dollars.

Uber has about 50,000 drivers in New York, according to a union grouping.
