Getman Sweeney Dunn is investigating CRST for misclassifying the drivers who lease trucks from subsidiaries as independent contractors, when they may actually be employees. By classifying drivers as contractors, rather than employees, CRST controls the drivers’ work just as they would employees, but shifts various costs and business risk onto the drivers. The result of a misclassification, if it is found to exist, is that various charges, such as truck lease, insurance, tolls, administrative costs, and QualComm would be legally impermissible deductions from wages in many states that lead to lease operators making less than what they should have made. If found to be employees, lease operators may be entitled to recover unpaid wages and liquidated (double) damages as secured by the Fair Labor Standards Acts and state laws. If you worked for CRST as a lease operator but were treated similarly to an employee, Contact Getman Sweeney Dunn to learn about your rights. The call is confidential and free.
