I worked for Florilli for about 6 months. In that time I had constant paycheck errors and was never able to have hometime when it was promised.
After a month leave for a family illness I returned to Florilli and advised them of hometime I needed for a court hearing involving child custody. When I was due to go home I had to fight with Florilli to get home.
I have to add that I told them I had to be there for court and if they couldn’t get me home I had to dead head myself home. I was told that if I did my truck would be reported stolen. After arguing I got home.
When I got home I found that my fiance’s house had no water. I called to advise Mike that I needed to remain at home until I had the water fixed. (2 of my children live there as well and one is a baby) I was dispatched on a load anyway. When I called again to tell them I was unable to pick up the load I was told that their load was more important than my water problem. Needless to say I could not leave her and my children with no water so I did not go for the load.
Then next day I got repeated threatening messages on the answering machine that I would be fired if I did not pick up the load and my work record would be ruined. Since I have been fired I cannot legally drive their truck so it sits in my fiance’s yard waiting for them to pick it up. A vehicle is not abandoned when they have fired you and you have given them the exact address of the truck!
They kept my last paycheck and only paid me half of what I should have been the week before. Needless to say I gave them 7 days to retrieve their truck or my fiance will begin charging storage fees. I may just be a “dumb truck driver” but she had a degree in criminal justice and many lawyers and law officers in her family as well as a brother that is a warehouse manager for one of their major accounts and we are prepared to fight them.
Don’t let “Big Companies” push you around! Use the law against them and don’t let them threaten you with their twisted version of the law!
