Metro Taxi Co Complaint - Payment Of Deposits For Security Deposits
ASHEVILLE, NORTH CAROLINA -- We paid $5.00 a day when driving for this company, and was supposed to get it back if the when we left the company, but the company went out of business, they told no one about it. Went to work one morning and the pace was locked up, so had to find other employment, They were supposed to give our deposit back that we paid in every day that we drove. Went in to ask for it back, and they kept saying it would be paid the next Friday, but hasn't been paid yet.
We paid every day to drive, plus the $5.00 deposit. They keep putting it off, there are 5 of us that they owe, but they will not pay up. The taxi! went out of business, now they are having elite transportation run the taxi service and charge a flat rate, we think this is not legal.
What are our options to recover the money that is owed us? I know that mine is $500.00, don't know about the rest of the drivers. They also run a towing company called all Safe Towing.
We need some advice on this, we could take it to the small claims court, but it costs to file and we not have the money to file the papers. So now what do we do?
