Paul Taylor of Truckers Justice Center

Trucking employment law attorney Paul Taylor of the Truckers Justice Center returns by popular demand to speak at the 2nd annual truck driver social media convention. Paul comes from a trucking family, he is an aggressive Whistleblower attorney who has been fighting unethical carriers on behalf of commercial drivers for over 20 years and he is an expert in trucking employment law.

Paul rocked last years’ convention with his valuable presentation on how truck drivers can protect themselves using the “Surface Transportation Assistance Act” (STAA)  in order to protect their CDL from employer harassment, including when they are being intimidated to violate HOS regulations.

Paul also explained how they can fight back against retaliation such as false DAC reports.

Paul O. Taylor is a member of the National Employment Lawyers Association. He’s handled employment cases before the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the Minnesota Department of Human Rights, the U.S. Department of Labor, most of the U.S. Circuit Courts of Appeals, U.S. District Court for Minnesota and Minnesota State and Supreme Courts. Mr. Taylor has also handled several cases at the U.S. Supreme Court.

By sharing notable cases and providing easy to follow tips, Attorney Paul Taylor empowers drivers to understand that they can fight back against wrongful behavior, keep their CDL, and in some cases keep their driving job.

Paul is one of the few lawyers who truly understand how trucking carriers are able to manipulate policies in order to harass truck drivers and he is willing to take them on in the courtroom for the long-haul. His significant cases are a testament to the courage few have shown to challenge carriers that abuse and attempt to destroy driving careers.
