My husband has been an OTR driver for 14 years. He has always maintaned a clean driving record and his DAC has always been clean. The work in the area we live in was down to nothing, he went on the road with JB Hunt.... He had a minor incident in Phoenix Oregon at the Petro stop off of I-5. (he bumped a trailer)

He found the driver of the trailer and they investigated, no damage and both the other driver and my husband were satisfied to find no problems.
My husband, who is forever trying to do the right thing, follows company procedure and calls in the local police to take pictures and file a report, to make sure nothing comes up in the future. Ha! Ha! JB Hunt terminates him and files a false claim to DAC stating that he was involved in an intersection accident.

We have been fighting for a year now to have this corrected and neither DAC or JB Hunt will cooperate. A JB Hunt representive (Mandy) even stated that she could see in her records that is was a minor incident in the parking lot and said she would straighten it out. Well, here is her definition of straightening things out...falsifing JB Hunt recordings to match the false DAC report. Oh yeah, when we asked for a copy of the report she was looking at, (the real report) she said she could not release that information. So, do not work for this company!!! My husband has not been able to obtain employment with any other OTR company in one full year!!!

We are gathering as many people as we can to file a class action suit against DAC and JB Hunt..if your driving carreer has been screwed do to liars and cheaters get in touch with us.

usis does report hear-say as fact with no proof

AUTHOR: Torchman - (U.S.A.)

i personally have been fired for an accident chargeable to the carrier for catastophic equipment failure causing a rollover(underspeed) for which I was initially charged for spilling load but them the state rescinded the charge. This employer has a record of 5 more times the same accident with other drivers after mine due to faulty specialized trailer design and DAC still reports it as "fired for abuse of equipment"

I have quit from 2 crooks that don't pay their bills and 1 outright criminal operation all of which report me as being fired for various reasons after I quit.

My family has been in business in Omaha for over 100years. Our business ethics are conservative. If I have to follow the law anyone I do business with must as well. A contract is a contract and you pay your bills. One way or the other everyone pays.... My corporation (established long before entering into trucking) has terminated contracts with 4 carriers over abuse of services, each of which fraudulently reports to DAC that I was an employee and fired(after losing my contract)

Without getting into how they get away with it for who and why it is so...Dac is a crook for the crooks, I'm not going after them civilly, I am hoping to see criminal conspiracy charges and nothing less for them and the frauds that have made falsified reports to them. I'm not disgruntled and i want nothing else but to see justice served.

There's A Reason Why This Is What It Is

AUTHOR: Anthony - (U.S.A.)

Your husband's mistake was to have the police investigate the trailer bumping.

This is considered to be an incident, not an accident. When your husband called in the police and a report was filed, it gave JB Hunt all the evidence to claim it as an accident, and thus the proof to be able to file it as such on his DAC Report.

This is a perfect example of why sometimes doing the right thing is equivilent to shooting one's self in the foot. Don't get me wrong, I'm all about doing the right thing, but you have to do so in ways at times to protect YOURSELF.

Given the scenario you described, if no damage was in evidence, then nothing needed to be documented. Notifying the other driver to the love tap would have been as far as I would have gone. If he was satisfied that all was okay, I would have parted ways and the company would have never known a thing.

Do you know WHY companies like JB Hunt have policies in place requiring you to call in police for any incident were metal meets metal? So that they can document the case and place it in a driver's file. You know what happened to your husband for following that policy.

Had he never reported it, he would not have been fired. Had he reported it, and simply told them that the police were declining to respond to an incident with no damage in evidence that occurred on private property, there would have been nothing at all they could have said or done about it, and they would have no alternative but to record it as an unspecified incident.

They can only place in your DAC Report, that which is backed up and a matter of record. They cannot offer innuendo or unjustifiable assessments. The police report makes it a matter of record, and it probably listed on that report the location of an intersection, and the fact that it occurred on private property was not noted on the report. Thus, JB Hunt is getting away with a documented misrepresentation.

If an actual accident occurs, you have no choice but to report it. This one didn't have to be, but he did the right thing according to policy, and he was burned for it.

It's simply another reason why this company consistently finds itself in need of good people, because they have proven time after time that they don't value honesty and integrity or good people. How could they? They don't practice those values at all in the course of running a business.

Get an attorney. He can perhaps track down the officer, obtain his written testimony on what went down, and force JB Hunt to back down on this claim. You might also contact the other company involved and get someone to verify the fact that no damage occurred, in writing, and achieve the same result.

The bottom line is that you are going to have to come up with some documentation to counter their copy of the police report. Until then, nothing will force USIS to budge. JB Hunt pays them too much every month to tempt USIS to delete a statement that was submitted by the company.

To anyone else who is considering this company as a place to work for, think seriously about how eager you are to be tarnished by this company. They have a record of filing intentionally misleading information on DAC Reports, an abysmal record of offering very poor working conditions, and have achieved a record of being the absolutely most dishonest company when it comes to recruiting drivers. Nothing offered will materialize when they have you hooked and on their property. Leave as a result of their dishonesty and game playing, and your record will be trashed.
