CRST Non-Compete

Ive already contacted a bankruptcy attorney and they said the same thing about if the debt is dismissed they shouldn't be able to hold me in a non compete either way its not what I really want to do I rather just come to an agreement where I can pay it all but the debt id be getting rid of is around 85k ive been back and forth with them for about the last year and haven't got anywhere with them even if the non compete somehow still stand afterwards I wont need such a high income because I wont have to pay back the debt ive just been trying to avoid bankruptcy but at that point I can take time a search for a different career ill just have to wait and see what happens the bankruptcy hurts them more than me though my credit is already gone and it would take me longer than the ten years it has to stay on my record to get all the debt paid off at this rate

Yes it was in a commercial vehicle for landscaping either way they are being a pain about it I am willing to work with them and get it paid in full if they would work with me other wise I'm going to have to file bankruptcy because at my current income level my other bills are starting to catch up with me too and I am not having much luck in the area finding a better paying job outside the trucking industry about 75 percent of the jobs that pay more than 30,000 a year are truck driving jobs or jobs I don't have recent experience in.

CRST Non-Compete

Sorry just realized the messages ive been sending on my phone aren't going through but the reason why they said I cant drive for them is because I got a ticket for an improper lane change and I have to wait 3 years from that date to be able to drive for them again and this happened roughly 2 years after I left them that's why I said 5 they are wanting me to have a completely clean driving record for a length of 3 years I contacted them 6 months after I started to go back and finish contract but at that time they wanted me to wait 2 yrs to start back with them and now the 3 years for the ticket even though I had a seat belt violation when I started with then which is out of there 3 year window now so all I have is the improper lane change violation

CRST Non-Compete

my attorney is already paid for in advance I have no fees for consultation or calls or letters written on my behalf and I don't have a problem paying back the money I have been working with someone setting up a payment plan just wanted to see if they could try to get me fired or not and legally they can they can just take me to court and have my wages garnished to get back the money lost the non-compete is no longer in affect and yes since leaving them my life has been much better I actually get to spend time with my family more and friends people don't really get to me I just needed to find out legally what was going to happen I do appreciate the advice sorry if I offended anyone on here and I'm not saying they are a bad company over all I do believe it is a case by case instance but there has been a lot of crappy things that I've seen then do and yes my friend did make good money for a few years and then it was unfortunate what happened and that was more on the dispatcher playing favoritism not CRST themselves

Yes while I was trying to negotiate a way to affordable pay back the loan I talked to them about coming back a finishing my term with them and they said I could not come back for a 5 year period I have tried to work with them in what every way I am able to and I know they have worked with other drivers with similar situations plus I wasn't lying when I told you what my friend made and its not just him ive talked with other drivers at trucks stops that are running into similar issues my friend has since left and is driving for a military contract overseas now

CRST Non-Compete

CRST Refuses to let me come back to them for 5 years I've already tried to go back to them and when you have bills to pay and a family to take care of 750 a month doesn't really work. They like to draw people in and tell them they'll make 900 or more per week right off the bat which is a lie. and its not just new people either its people who have been there for awhile me friend was making good money and then they switched dispatchers on him and hes only made 17000 this year. anyway ive already talked with my attornety and they have to legal ground to say I breached a non compete clause the term was only for 8 months which is how it is worded in the original contract all the can do is come at me for money owed which I don't have a problem making arrangements to pay that back I just get tired of these big companies playing high and mighty and act like they take care of people and I understand have to work up to mile but when they only pay you $.0125 a mile you need as many miles as you can get I would expect to make the same amount as working at mcdonalds atleast and trying to say I took my home time in random cities because you couldn't find me a load is ridiculous

Well I do appreciate the advise my company does offer non cdl positions but they do pay less can they get me for that because I would not require there training to have gotten the job I have heard yes and no among friends but does anyone know if this is legal I would hate to start over at a different company and loose my work history with this current company

Yes I did agree to the terms but it also states the term length is 8-months and it's 2 1/2 years later plus I already have an attorney on retainer for 350 hours so I'm not worried I'm just wanting to seek his advice because the contract is very open ended and they are unwilling to work with me when I know drivers that worked there that they set up arrangements with to drive for other carriers

CRST Non-Compete

Hello I am dealing with a few issues with a non-compete clause through CRST and would like a little advice or life experience with this.

I signed a driver Employment Contract with CRST International on August 20th, 2014. I went through training and immediately went on the road with a trainer and did my time I was away from home for a total of around two months and in that time was only able to log and get paid for about 6,000 miles which is about 750 per month. At this point my bills are not being able to be paid and they are not wanting to let me have home time for another 3-4 weeks.

So all in all I decide to quit and pursue employment elsewhere. I returned home and worked warehouse for awhile until I can across another driving job to find out about my non-compete clause this was about 6-months after CRST so I was unable to get the job so about 9 months in all so far. I understood the idea of it and did not have the funds at the time or income to pay back my debt to them. For the most recent account back in July of 2016 I was able to line a job up with another carrier do dedicated regional and actually being able to make enough to pay back my debts. I ran into a problem with the non-compete clause yet again.

The other company was willing to wait on me to work things out and set up an arrangement with them to temporarily let me drive on the basis I make payments towards the loan. I contacted CRST and attempted to make arrangements to repay the loan if I were able to drive I was willing to make a $500 dollar good Faith payment and willing to pay $100 dollars a week until my $4200 dollar balance was paid off. After several attempts to make an arrangement they would still not agree to let me drive for the other company.

After two years past the contract date I was able to get a local Class B driving job which doesn't pay very much but am using it to get the experience I need to move forward. This past week though I was contacted by an debt collection attorney saying I was in breach of contract because of the non-compete clause in said contract. They stated I needed to pay a balance of $6,000 dollars or they will be contacted my Employer and I will be losing my job they have agreed to take payments from me but will not let me keep my job unless I pay the full $6,000 dollars the problem with this is if I lose the job I am in I will not make enough to pay anything towards them because I will be losing $3-$4 dollars an hour plus 10 hours of overtime per week do to not having recent experience in other field of work.

I have a copy of the contract I signed and it does not stated a specific amount of time that the restriction can be upheld it specifically states the there "Restrictive term" means the Term including any period of the Term remaining after the Termination of employment of employee with or without cause by either party; provided however, that the Restrictive Term shall lapse immediately upon employee paying in full the amount due.

My question is it legal for them to carry this non-compete against with without said length of time two years has been hard enough trying to find a job that pays well and I cant pay anyone back with out a good paying job. has anyone had experience with this or known anyone to deal with this issue?

P.S. I am contacting an attorney, just wanting to know experiences with this issue when company is unwilling to work things out. other than taking a full payment that has over $2000 dollars added to it
