    Hello I was working for this drayage company. owned by an East European people. They gave plates and insurance, but I think the plates were fake because one time I caught a Driver( company ) that had a registration with my same plates.
    Also they lied! given me trips that didn’t pay anything. Eventually a Quit now they holding my last paycheck and won’t respond to my massages. What can I do. Is this legal? If the plates are fake does that mean I didn’t have insurance and all the deductions were fake?

    A driver should do exactly what a trucking company does, before hiring, do a deep investigation of what you are about to step into.

    An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. But since you did not take this to heart, you probably are going to suffer the consequences. You might try taking them to Small Claims Court, but I highly doubt you being successful. I know it is hard but you just need to mark it up to "live and learn"..
     
    Veteran driver and Xenergiserx Thank this.

    Well I’ll try calling Illinois and the insurance company. Just let them know what they are doing. And move on.

    Its probably not legal to hold your last paycheck but, if they aren't responding to your massages, try rubbing below the belt, so how they respond.

    I’d contact someone at the state DOT and revenue office and give them the documentation that the company is commuting tax fraud

    also , any Chicago based company or any company run by Russians or e anyone from the former Soviet Union ,
    WILL rip you off .
    That’s a guaranteed .
     
    Veteran driver, Xenergiserx and Grouch Thank this.

    If you are an O/O that was paid under 1099, you can certainly kiss your money goodbye. But you can try to cause the company some "headaches" by making the state aware of what they are doing. Personally, I cannot understand why the Feds. have not stepped in on these companies such as the one you described.If they are ripping the state off, you know they are doing the same to the Federal system.
     
    Xenergiserx Thanks this.
