i'm not sure how old this is or if it's a repost, but Gordon has frozen hiring because this lawsuit is pending against interstate (both companies are in WA state) and i was hoping to get on with Gordon after graduating from truck driving school.
here's part of the article:
how will the outcome of this affect other states you think? if the companies were to move out of washington just to beat this it would put the burden on the drivers from Washington no?

lawsuit for truck drivers overtime pay, interstate distributor Co.

i got the info:
Westberry v. Interstate Distributor Co
Defendant:Interstate Distributor Co
Filed:June 24, 2008
Court:Washington Western District Court
Office:Labor: Other Office [ Court Info ]
Presiding Judge:Judge Ronald B. Leighton
Presiding Judge:Judge Benjamin H Settle
Nature of Suit:Labor - Other Labor Litigation
Jury Demanded By:28:1441 Notice of Removal
it would be interesting to see the outcome, this means any company based out of here would have to pay their drivers more even if those drivers are hired from another state and never even see WA state.
why do i get the feeling that the drivers will end up paying the cost if this lawsuit is successful?
Injun, not necessarily on the time issue - I worked for a lawfirm for 6 years and I've seen cases go over 3 years before final opinions. Many people mistake the magic "2 year" rule as a timeline or limit in litigation, and it's not - many situations have a 2 year statute of limitations to FILE, not close or any other outcome.
