    Hows is it ok for a team driver to abandon a codriver at a truck stop then take off on her HOS. Oh he tossed most of her belongings in the Fuel Isle. She was looking for the truck and found her things in a pile.
    She sits in a hotel 11 hours from home with no pay. And company is sending her home on a bus. Mind you she has too much to carry and must leave things behind. Hes driving solo now to finish the last miles. How come he iij s rewarded for this behavior and shes sent home on bus.
    What legal actions does she have in this situation. She is under contract.

    Read the contract, but probably nothing she can do.

    Don’t team unless you’re married, best friends or relatives

    She will have to take him to small claims court with all the expenses thereof. Its not worth it.

    You do not team as Mototom stated unless you are brothers, besties or married in particular.

    That is one rule broken, a commandment actually. Never abandon your team mate. That is actually potentially a punishable offense by firing etc.

    Wife and I had a argument in that truck with me driving near St Louis one day, it does not matter what the argument was about because it was too many miles and no time for either one of us at that point in time so anything was fair game. We know how to argue and fight with words and fix the damage tomorrow.

    A detective noticed my driving was quite bad due to that stupid noise and pulled us over. Once he understood what was going on instead of pig piling us arrest etc he managed to speak softly and say whats up? And so after about 20 minutes no more problems and it was a much much better night. It did cost dispatch a extra half a day in appt changing for us to have a meal together for once and a hotel. But alls well that ends well.

    There is always a point at which one can tell another where they can shove it. Thats when things get dangerous and there is nothing under the sun on God's green earth worth that. Short of a high crime.
     
    Mototom Thanks this.

    this begs the questions of, "what did SHE DO to cause this "?

    you only gave what happened, but not WHY it happened.

    i got questions and ideas on what happened, i ain't no young'in, been around the block a time or 2, and i can pretty much come up with my own set of reasons why this happened

    so tell us what happened, on YOUR part to cause this.

    he should have never done that, but then again, when 2 people are cooped up in a small space, tempers flare, but, someone did something long before this all exploded the way it did.
