Trucker's wife needs advice
Hi I am a trucker's wife whose husband has been gone for 3 months now. He tells me that he was told over the message board that the next time he gets to corporate to fill out a new application to see if he was telling the truth.
I don't get it. I always thought that when you fill out an application, the trucking companies review it & then hire you. When my husband filled out the application, he waited 4 weeks & was told by the company that we reviewed your application & it looks good.
I was not with my husband when he filled out the application - he was at a career links - my concern is that at his last employer, the employer said he had 3 prior accidents that were over 4 months old, he got no tickets nor did he have a police report filed on him? Can the company terminate him for this?
The union lawyer fought for my husband that it was the old company's policy to state that he left the company for downsizing & it was agreed that the company would not mention about the accidents to employers. I just don't want him to lose his job.
