DAC stands for Drive A Check

DAC stands for Drive A Check

In July of 2009, I began the Stop False DAC Reporting petition which as of this date has received 2,180 signatures.  Having been in contact with several law firms across the country, it has been an on-going battle to bring an end to the abuses faced by many professional truck drivers in regards to false information being placed on their DAC reports by trucking companies.

One of the major obstacle that truck drivers face is the ability to find employment, once false information has been reported on their DAC report.  It can literally destroy their career.

Most often, the false information has been reported to USIS DAC Services by the trucking company for retaliation purposes against the driver; even for such reasons as the driver leaving for better employment.

DAC Report Class Action Registry

One of the many law firms I have had contact with since beginning the Stop False DAC Reporting initiative has launched the DAC Report Class Action Registry.Their goal is to learn more about the problem of false DAC reporting directly from truck drivers, in hopes that a pattern will emerge that justifies class action treatment.

If you have been injured by false information in your HireRight USIS DAC Services report and you are in favor of a class action to stop false DAC reporting, please share your DAC experience with the Registry.  Your story will help the Registry in identifying a group, or groups, of drivers with claims against a common trucking company that are sufficiently similar, to be brought as a class action suit.

Whether or not you are interested in filing a lawsuit, or even participating as a class member, there are potentially thousands of truck drivers who could benefit from you sharing your story with the Registry.

False DAC reporting is one of the biggest problems within the OTR trucking industry. Share your story with the Registry and continue to sign the Stop False DAC Reporting petition.

    YAY!!! Long overdue! I hope that truckers will band together and sue the pants off of “Hire Right”, “USIS” or whatever they call themselves this week.

    Hi Christy: This is a big step in the right direction, but no guarantee of any action. It is a vital step to receive information from truck drivers who have been victimized by false DAC reporting to see if further action can be taken against the trucking companies who do this. Again, we are headed in the right direction, and truck drivers who have had false information placed on their DAC by companies really need to share their story with the Registry!!

    Why does hire right make a report without verifying anything. Martini inc. Repoted that I had an accident. There’s nothing on my driving adstract about any accident.

    This is why I walked away from the Trucking in 2007. It’s been 9 years and I tell you this I will never go back to trucking. I keep my class A so I can drive my RV across country when I retire. I was lucky to get a good job outside of trucking. I was able to make a carrier change by not having a family. It is sometimes good to not have a Family that depends on you. I’m a single man. It is horrible what they do to people and no body cares!

What do you have to say about this?
