Lyft Inc. is facing increased pressure from plaintiffs attorneys who want the ride-hailing company to pay millions of dollars in arbitration fees that would allow thousands of drivers to bring individual claims that the company misclassified drivers as independent contractors rather than employees.

The plaintiffs firm Keller Lenkner, representing 3,420 Lyft drivers, on Thursday asked a San Francisco federal judge to compel the company to start the arbitration process by paying the fees, as required by drivers’ employment contracts. The cost for initial fees would be $1,900 per case, a total of nearly $6.5 million.
