    YOU ARE NOT HEARING ME.
    THEY SAID CAMS ONLY SAVE 30 SECONDS WORTH OF VIDEO IF THERE IS AN INNCIDENT, WHEN IN FACT THEY SAVED ALL OF OUR PERSONAL PHONE CONVERSATIONS FOR OVER A YEAR, AND WE ONLY RECENTLY FOUND OUT. YES MOVING ON, YES SUING!

    AND YES CAN SUE FOR LOG TAMPERING. TO SUGGEST ONE CAN NOT, CLEARLY EXPOSES YOU AS BEING HERE TO SPY AND MISLEAD.

    Well, most of us are aware that is the way corporate shills work, and no doubt some are here.

    Maybe you are a real trucker.
    Maybe you like to post pictures of your truck hauling animals to their slaughter.

    But it re-enforces the assertion that you are not a lawyer.
    Otherwise, you'd, be a lawyer. Tee hee.

    Owner op? Still a slave giving 24-7, as you certainly must know it isn't over when you park it.

    If I go that route, it will be a dodge 3500 5.9 dually, hot shotting with a 48 foot goose neck flatbed with living quarters at the front of the trailer.

    More comfort.
    More earnings.
    More control.
    No tyranical monsters.

    That will probably happen soon.
    But they had no right to record and save
    all my phone calls without telling me,
    and in fact lying to the contrary.

    Nor did they have right to shorten
    the pay time on legit certified logs.
    We will sue.

    You asked a question and now you aren't getting the answers you want and start saying people are a "corporate shill". You are always going to get different opinions here. Take the advice or leave it, but do so without insulting other members.

    I don't think you should sue. I don't see where you have a case. Their company their rules....all you gotta do is go somewhere else. Not only that, you've worked there 3 years.....cut your losses, go somewhere else ...do better
     
    Crude Truckin' and buzzarddriver Thank this.

    There are two types of people. One type realizes they’ve made a poor choice for an employer and will move on. One type will make a poor choice for an employer, not own up to their bad decision, continue to stay there and get treated like crap, and then look for monetary gain because of their poor choices.

    That sounds like a case all right. I’d be very interested to see in discovery who accessed the personal (non driving) part of those videos and if any sections of those videos were copied and pasted for dissemination outside the office.

    Look, it’s not paranoia. It’s human nature, sadly. There was a driver who sued HireRight because he suspected his ex employer put some bad non-driving information in his DAC file because he couldn’t get hired after he left the job on bad terms. Turns out he was right. He found a lawyer who sued them, and in discovery he found a comment from his ex employer that had nothing to do with accidents. Turns out HireRight was adding these kind of comments regularly. That lawyer then started a class action against HireRight forcing them to declare bankruptcy.

    When a corporation declares bankruptcy a clock starts limiting the time that people can file lawsuits against it. Hundreds, maybe thousands of people weren’t able to find work because some trucking company put illegal comments on their work record. Heaven knows how many evictions, bankruptcies, divorces, and possibly suicides that caused. It’s no wonder they wanted to try to limit that.

    The fact they even have a single employee left to drive their trash is why they're doing it. If all of you who are talking class action suit all quit the same day with no notice would be more effective in getting them to sit up and take notice, that's assuming there's a large chunk of you willing to sign on to a lawsuit.

    That’s funny rubber.

    we need to hear the other side.


    Class action suites have to be qualified by a judge, and in most cases they don’t apply for things like this.
