Many drivers have experienced, or are at the very least familiar with, employer retaliation via wrongful and often harmful false information reported to authorized agencies. It’s not an exaggeration to say that many a career has been ruined by these antics. The most common of all is the infamous DAC report.
Professional CDL drivers have agreed that even “subtle suggestions” of DAC or other negative reporting is still used to maintain “control” of their driver employee. Is there a solution to these behaviors? Can drivers fight back? Yes they can. Below are just 2 examples of cases that were taken to court and then won. Both cases were won by Paul Taylor of Truckers Justice Center
Not all false DAC reporting makes it to court as in the above two examples. Sometimes all it takes is to dispute or challenge the false allegations via the HireRight website. As drivers have found out however, sometimes it’s not all that easy to contest false information that is reported. Jon Stanek of Stanek Law Office, as just one of his trucker related services, assists drivers through his website FixMyDacReport
