I went through the C.R England school after filing a non disclosure statement due to California labor code 432.8. I'm doing well. I'm the last one from my group to still be here. It's a job and it's experience.

I feel bad for filing non disclosures and preventing things from hitting the justice report but I need my money. I dont feel bad for the marijuana violators that arent smart enough to figure it out cuz they wreck rigs!

Ignorance is no excuse for the law. If a CALIFORNIA CODE states I only have to go back seven years and I dont have to disclose it Im not going to disclose. Especially when the employer is guilty of a misdemeanor. Im not teaching law lessons. Thats for the court rooms. I leave Sunday back to my program

disclose is different than lying...if the employer ask you have you ever been convicted of a crime or in the last 10 years, and you answer NO on the app. then you are lying.....this is different. if you lie and say NO and they find out you can be released from your job...also your post states YOU should not disclose it, it does not tell the justice report THEY should not disclose it...you must read between the lines and the trickery of laws, read them carefully and in depth... an employer finds out after you lie and say no on your app., this does not mean he has to tell you the reason why he didn't hire you or release you from the job... if they find out and they let you go he does not have to disclose why you have been let go, because in this State CA. we are AT WILL...... meaning they can let a person go with out an excuse.

So you can fight this all day long however, you are wasting precious energy in trying to convince the public not to disclose and with all these posting when you can be looking for a job best suited for you. The anger you are feeling towards the system is eating you up and misdirecting you and into the rut you are presently in.

No one is hating, we are trying to help you move out of this rut you are so willing to be in. It's time to pick up the pieces and move on. You sound like you do a lot of research so why not find a new career and stop wasting time persuading people over to your side. We are not made to listen to the negative some do however, it isn't of the social norm. So move onto the good side of town and find something you can do outside of trucking if it is giving you so much grief trying to get hired on. Good Luck

Im sure the justice report will get the trucking industry around not following employment laws. Not providing any Consumer reports. Violating the constitution and breaking 1785.13. Im sure the Supremes would enjoy taking a number

In the trucking business they ask for your justice report...and if you don't feel you need to show them or ignore the rquest....well they just ignore you and flush your app down the toilet!

And here is another way to not get hired on or terminated if you lie on the app.;

Not telling the truth can have serious consequences down the road. If the employer does a criminal background check and discovers an unreported charge, in some cases they have grounds to terminate employment.

I can see you whining all the way to the Supreme court on this one...
