When I lost my medical card, I contacted CFI and they told me I could be on FMLA. On September 6th, I received a packet from them with FMLA documents. In there I found out I was not allowed to work while on FMLA. The next day I called HR and explained that I couldn't live without working and I would rather resign than be terminated. So, September 6th was my official last day. I sent the following letter to my FM.

Dispatcher, Fleet Manager, Driver Manager

The primary person a driver communicates with at his/her company. A dispatcher can play many roles, depending on the company's structure. Dispatchers may assign freight, file requests for home time, relay messages between the driver and management, inform customer service of any delays, change appointment times, and report information to the load planners.

Oh man this is a real bummer. I really hate to hear that. Good to see though that you did leave on good terms and you have an open invitation to come back once you get your health back in order and get the medical card issue resolved. Keep your head up and keep doing what you need to do to fix this. I have faith in you and truly wish you the best. Do keep us updated in the future and please do stick around the forums.

That is something wonderful and rare, Scott. Not that you were forced to resign - that is tragic and difficult to contemplate - but that you didn't react with bitterness toward the company you had to walk away from. Best of luck in your future endeavors!

Going out with your head high is the way to go, Scott. Good luck going forward.

Integrity is priceless. Can’t teach it...but you gotta have it. You obviously have it.

Hope you get your health in check and we eventually read about Big Scott 2.0.

Good luck.
