Trucker fired for incomplete log book - South Carolina
I was shut down due to driving hours and when they checked my logs they found a mistake so the company fire me.
You need to refer to the trucking company handbook to see what it says is the policy for your rule violation.
Most trucking companies have a rule book the size of an encyclopedia because they need to conform to so many governmental rules.
I know some companies have a policy of sending you back for "special logbook training".
A one time error may be difficult for the employer to actually prove willful misconduct, but it can be done if they can show your actions were intentional by proving you were "falsifying your log.
They can do this through the use of the log and their GPS tracking...most companies use Qualcom or something similar for this.
So you tell me Sam....can they prove it?
