Internet trucking talk radio show, Truth About Trucking “LIVE” continued their efforts in reporting the abuse and harassment that is taking place in some areas of the trucking industry. Seldom reported, more and more are “speaking out” against this workplace abuse and the final result that is being worked towards is change.
With lawsuits being placed against some trucking companies and hundreds of complaints being filed by employees of trucking, people are finally fighting back for their employee rights.
Topics of the show included: What you can do if ever faced with an abusive situation at your workplace and what steps you should take to protect your rights as an employee and to insure that the correct procedures are followed so action is taken against the abuser.
