G-Town, thank you for your input and believing me. I didn't know about the Swift incident, how sad. So far I have not received a billing statement from CRST, but I also do not have a release either. I don't want to be a trouble maker in all this unless it could save someone from injury or death. As far as I know the school might have already dealt with the situation. But I will consider filling a report with CRST's Human Resources/ Safety Department.

that's definitely the right path to take. Hopefully they will be able to give you a clear answer (and documentation) whether you owe them money or not, as well as if the non-compete is in effect. Please keep us updated and if there's anything we can do.

Thanks Rob, and G-Town. I am drafting a letter that will go to CRST's Human Resources within a few days. I will enclose a written statement of about the safety issue, and a copy of the letter I sent to the school's director asking why I was dismissed when I was improving. I will update as the process goes along. Again thanks to everybody that been supportive through this ordeal.

I've been following your journey since you started this post. And I was looking forward to possibly seeing you, and millionmiler train. But to be honest Doug i agree with Old School. Move on. The only thing I'd be doing at this point that involved CRST is figuring out if I had to reimburse them, and as mentioned would be consulting a lawyer. And id also be applying to other large carriers, and explaining my situation. You never know. There are plenty of other great companies out there that have teams. Schneider is a good example. Any Schneider KW T680 you see around is a team. And if it didn't work out you would simply go solo whereas CRST is strictly team right? Either way good luck Doug, im pulling for ya.

I suggested he report this for very good reason.

If he was dismissed because of this incident and he documents it, there is a very low probability they will block him from going elsewhere and also more likely release him from any financial responsibility.

I do agree with the legal angle, at least consult with an attorney so if CRST tightens up, he’ll have a fallback plan.

Until he is sure they will release him from the contract, it’s unlikely any company will pick him up until there is documentation in place confirming the contract is voided.

Good luck Doug.

Understand G-town. It probably wouldn't hurt to really express you desire and want to come back in that letter. I hope its not a complete waste of time for you.
