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.
