My name is Emily Barth. I am an attorney at the DC Office of the Attorney General (OAG) in the Office of Consumer Protection. The OAG is requesting help from all DMV community partners in returning $1.5 million dollars to eligible Instacart workers that made deliveries in DC and were not properly paid by Instacart – we believe that over 10,000 individuals in the DMV region are eligible, and we need help getting the word out. Instacart workers who made deliveries in DC may be eligible for a minimum cash refund of $150 as the result of an OAG lawsuit—but workers need to file an online claim form by March 25, 2023 to get their money. The claims website is https://instacartworkerrefundsdc.com/
Would you please consider promoting the following information on your various channels? We’ve included some social media options below and in the attachments.
Please let us know if you have any questions, and thank you in advance for helping us reach more eligible workers. You can email me directly at Emily.firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions. We want to return this money to the workers that earned it! Thank you for your support.

Headline: $150 Cash Refunds for Instacart Workers that made deliveries in DC
Instacart workers who made deliveries in DC may be eligible for a cash refund of $150 or more—but workers need to file an online claim form by March 25 to get their money. You do not need to be a DC resident to be eligible.
Because of a lawsuit filed by the Office of the Attorney General, Instacart workers who made at least one delivery in DC between October 1, 2016 and April 30, 2018 can receive cash payments of at least $150. As many as 10,000 workers across the DC region could be eligible to receive these payments.
Workers must fill out an online claim form by March 25, 2023, to qualify for payment. More information and the online claim form are available at: instacartworkerrefundsdc.com
