Ride-hailing company Lyft will pay $27 million to settle a class-action lawsuit brought by drivers who sought to be classified as employees, after a judge gave the agreement final approval Thursday.

Though the settlement results in payment to drivers and some changes to Lyft’s terms of service for drivers, it does not decide the question of whether drivers are employees or independent contractors.

That matter “will have to wait for another day,” said plaintiff attorney Shannon Liss-Riordan.
