    I had left freight systems to work for us express. they sent me through orientation, I did not need a physical since mine was still valid. well they left me sitting for 2 weeks then freight systems asked me to come back and they would pay for all expenses so I did. well anyway, us express charged me 100.00 for a physical. i told them i did not take a physical. i did not pay them. now they put it in with a collection agency. what is my recourse.

    What do you mean they left you sitting for 2 weeks? The fact you already had a valid DOT medical is irrelevant in a new-hire situation with most larger carriers. And I'd be shocked if US Express would honor another DOT medical. But how did you "sit for 2 weeks" and NOT do a physical in that time?
