What can a do if the regarding a bad report from past company I worked for whose equipment was impounded & ticketed for safety violations?
I was working for a company who had issues with their equipment, got pulled over a couple of times & the vehicle was impounded.
Police wrote ticket to the company. I was warned by Police that if they seen me driving truck & the violations were not corrected they would write ticket against me personally.
Anyway, I quit working for them because of their lack of concern. I was lucky to have a buddy who had a construction company who put me to work right away, but knows that when a trucking job comes up that I'm back on the road.
So, several months down the road, I apply for a job and was told that they could not hire me due to the background report they pulled on me which showed all the violations against the company on the truck I was driving.
I was told that there is nothing I can do to correct this since I was the driver of the truck and the police had my information that this would go under my CDL # and stay for approx 4 years.
The new law that went into effect back 2010.
It doesn't show as points just list all the violations on the truck I was driving that got impounded & ticketed. This sucks. I am having trouble getting work as a trucker, and was unaware of this until I had applied for that 1 job last month.
I left the company to prevent from having issues getting a future job, now it effects me anyway. Anyone got any advice as to what I can do. Otherwise my MVR is clean, no citations, no accidents.
What can I do.
Plus they were late in giving me my W2 to file my taxes, thought you were suppose to have them by Feb 15th? Anyone got any advise. Can I take legal action? Can I file an appeal?
