Covenant Transport now has implemented another scheme by charging the drivers for any idle time over 30%. I was charged an outrageous amount just this week. There was no possible way that my specific idle time was over that percentage due to a mechanical proble that stopped me from idling the truck. It had been that way for the prior 3 weeks. When I confronted the charge to payroll, I was told that they don't have records of idle time. Payroll just deducts out the money they are told to deduct. I would have to speak to my dispatcher. When I spoke to him, he stated that there is no way for me to get any proof. THEY ARE CHARGING ME AN OUTRAGEOUS CHARGE THEY WONT PROVE. Not that I should have to pay this anyway. This was not in my terms of employment initially.
The miles are being paid to drivers using a program that short the drivers a huge amount of miles (up to 20% in my own experiences). When I have confronted the dispatchers and Operation Manager about this, I am told that they have nothing to do with it and that the miles are computer generated (using a chimerical route).
Also, I have now been shorted large portion of the bonus in which I met all qualifications for (75%). They are in the business to rip their Drivers off as they portray a Christian based company. I am suprised God hasnt stuck the coporate building down.
I am planning my own lawsuit. However, I AM IN FAVOR OF A MULTI-CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT. This company, nor any of these companies, should get away with not paying there employees properly. I know the world isn't perfect, but with everyone's help, we can make a difference! I hope to update this report with a Law Firm contact or hope a Lawyer will read this and contact me.
