    The W2 is easy. Write to the IRS explaining that you havent received your W2 and are getting the run around. Send a notarized copy via certified mail to KLLM/FFE... watch how fast that W2 shows up.

    Was your paycheck on direct deposit from KllM, if so does your bank statement reflect a deposit with their name on it.

    How companies like to play the spite game.

    I left prior to the KLLM takeover was official, but I've got all my bank statements showing the direct deposits. Conwell, LLC is the name on it though, that was one of FFE's shell companies (for lack of a better term).

    I think that's all this is, a spite game.

    There's some BS excuse about how a company could be sued if someone verifies employment. I call nonsense. If someone disparages a former employee, maybe there's a claim, but simple employment verification? Not likely.

    Not quite true 'lil sister.........In my career I've seen several carriers get sued or threatened over what they asked at interviews and released post employment. 99% of the info was true too...that's the problem .........

    EG: When I applied for my first pvt fleet job, it was over the fax.....and then they flew down here to make the final cut. Met them at a hotel for the interview.....ok fine. There was actually 10 of us playing for 2 jobs and one applicant was a minority gal. So anyway they interviewed all of us....as a group and then single and put us all back in the lobby to await their decision ( offer pending physical and verifications) and we all chatted. Some of the guys were from major gas haulers, some OTR and she was a local box driver, a 26' bobtail. Doing liquor etc. so I'm thinking " how did she get here?" I mean these guys are looking for tanker guys.....so anyway, I made the cut.

    A month later in the safety mtg. the safety guy was growling about her suing the carrier.....ahh what? So I asked him and sure enough, discrimination and some other charges......really? They ended up giving her a few grand to go away. She said they cut her for being a minority.

    There are other examples of folks not getting a new job and blaming the former for a poor review. The law says you can only verify certain things like failed drug test, handled money, dates of employment etc.......but a catch phrase is typically used to skirt this......." Is he eligible for rehire?" and a no indicates a problem. Some may jump in and say well it's company policy and that maybe true but YOUR prospective employer could care less about your formers internal policies.

    I was under the (possibly misinformed) impression that the only thing a prospective employer was really safe asking was start/end dates and "is this person eligible for rehire?". Most other information can be gathered from other avenues, including failed drug tests I'm sure.

    KLLM uses a third party company to verify employment. I just bought a car and I had an issue with this. I contacted my payroll clerk and she emailed me a letter stating that I was employed, and another document showing my estimated earnings. I requested the info in the morning and I had it in my inbox in less than an hour.

    I don't have much positive to say about KLLM right now, but that was one positive experience, so I wanted to share it. I have posted other threads looking for other former FFE drivers to share their experiences with KLLM, but I have only received one response. I want to know if the issues I am having are the exception or the rule.
     
    JPenn Thanks this.

    Good to know... Wonder if this third party handles prior employees of acquired companies. Any chance you could pm me any contact info for this third party verification outfit?
