Complaint Review: Covenant Transport
I was cheat by the payroll department.
I drive as a team. My co-driver and I were given a dedicated route. We normally get paid by the mile. We were to get a flat rate of $1000 per week. The first week payroll made a mistake and payed us milage pay. Instead of $1000 I recieved $670. I notified my fleet manager who was supposed to notify the payroll department and payroll would fix the error. I assumed they would add the $300 my paycheck was short to the next paycheck. My co-driver assumed the same thing as well as my fleet manager. Seems reasonable right? Is this what they did? HELL NO!!
The next week I recieved a check for $125. $125 for seven days of work. Somehow payroll reduced what should have been an $800 net to $125. I called payroll and argued with them for over 30 minutes. They insisted that there was no mistake. They told me adding the $330 that my check was short the previous week to my present check would be bad accounting practices. What they had done was paid me $2000. $1000 for the week they owed me and $1000 for the previos week I was shorted. That put me into a higher tax bracket. Fine there's nothing I can do about that. I also had to pay health insurance. That means I should have had at least $1200-1300 left. What payroll did was to take the milage pay I received the week before by mistake out of the $2000. I agreed with them, They should have taken $670, the amount I was paid the previos week, out of the $2000. I should have recievd a check for $670. I insisted that they had taken too much milage pay back. They would not admidt that they had done that. I know they made a mistake because my co-driver showed me his check and it was close to the amount i should have been paid.
They payroll depart will take money out of your check they they are not supposed to.
