Hey LAATrucker,

I have been following you since I started trucking roughly 2 years ago i started late in the game doctor.

My question for you is how much notice should I give my current company as a lease operator? Most places of employment say 2 weeks.

I'm not making the monies as projected and plan to purchase a used truck which i have researched & lease on for percentage versus paid miles sir?

Thank you, JediNite55

I'm unfamiliar with contracts signed by drivers with their employers but is there a "non-compete" clause in it?

If yes, I'd see an attorney before starting up your business and competing with your soon-to-be former employer.

Notice prior to leaving your company

Michael I would do 2 weeks notice minimum if you were company driver.

Since you are lease operator, I would see if the contract requires a notice of a different length or not. Otherwise there might be penalties.
