I had worked for CRST for a short period of time when I was offered a very lucrative job with a local carrier. I was with a "trainer" whose idea of training was to tell me (from the sleeper) "Hey, you're driving -- You figure it out" when the offer came. I was in Fontana,CA to drop an empty trailer when I jumped ship. I had discussed this impending event with the dispatcher via Qualcomm since Georgia. I paid my own way back to NC from LAX.
CRST put an entry on my DAC claiming that I had "abandoned equipment". Obviously, since I was with a trainer the equipment had not been issued to to me and therefore was not mine to abandon. CRST had advance notice of my intentions well before my actions.
I take my DAC report very seriously since it reflects upon me and want to know if I can have the entry removed. Can I pursue any legal action against CRST for defamation of character?
