just a question i would like to throw out there is why do some of the companies constantly cheat their drivers out of their wages i could see if the driver drew all his money while on the road but what i am talking about is the ones who even after a driver has taken care of equipment and given a two week notice tried to do whats right but the carrier still comes up with some lame ass excuse to keep their money

There arepeople out there that think that they just don't have to pay but if we don't stand up to them they will continue doing it! Put the word out about the company that has done this to you. Report them to the proper authorities and when they get tired of paying the fines they will finally stop or they will be shut down. Going through the same thing. REPLY REPLY WITH QUOTE

Mike,

Tammie gave you some realy good advice. I'd like to furthure what she said. If it were me, i would start with contacting the BBB ( Better Business Bureau). Find out what kind of a rating the Company has in the community if any. Here you can file a complaint against them. In Texas not sure about the state you are from, but this report I believe stays on their record for 3 years, maybe more. After that I probably would turn them over to a collection agentcy. You'll loose a percentage of what is owed to you, but I have found that its worth the "fee" to cause them the grieve. At this point I always try to keep the Company in the rear view mirror and NEVER haul for them again. Lesson learned, the hard way! Belive it or not, word of mouth will cause them alot of grive too, just be careful not slander the Company, as you know they have rights also. Hope this helps.

Kenny

In Texas if someone does not pay you on the designated payday they have broken what is called the Texas Payday Law. You fill out a form through the local workforce commission, you give copies of any proof that you have such as bill of ladings, the company will be investigated and when it is proven, which it should be that they chose not to pay you then they will be fined they amount they owe you and will be forced to pay you also or you can file a civil suit which costs you money upfront and can drag out for months and the company will not get fined. I like the first option better.

Mike you can also get a hold of the Missouri Labor Board or what ever state it is that the company is in and have them try to help you get your money. We had to do this with a company in Western Kansas as they didnt want to pay us for being company drivers. It takes awhile but you get your money. REPLY REPLY WITH QUOTE

I am almost 30 days out waiting for payment loads delivered here in Tx. On the 31st day we
are going to file a mechanic's lien against the truck. The owner will not
be able to re-register the truck or sell it until the lien is paid. You may also
consider small claims court, depending on the amount owed to you.
Good luck!

I dont understand why companies do that. I was wondering if anyone knows can a companies more or less terminate you after you are released form work comp. They are saying I quit and now I am fighting for unemployment. Just dont get why companies got to treat drivers like that.
