UPCOMING WEBINARS:

Decision on Classifying Owner-Operators & Impact on Trucking (Aug. 17 - 10:00 am): The U.S. Supreme Court announced on June 30 it has declined to hear an appeal of a California state law aimed at reclassifying owner-operators as motor carrier employees.In an order list, the high court without comment denied a petition for review by the California Trucking Association of California’s AB 5 law that CTA has said includes a legal test, known as the three-pronged “ABC test,” that will all but ensure that independent owner-operators will be reclassified as carrier employees.

The denial leaves in place the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals decision that federal law does not pre-empt application of AB 5 law to owner-operators. Eventually, the case will have to go back to the district court to consider CTA’s “commerce clause” claim.

We will discuss the impact of California's AB 5 which enacted the ABC worker classification test and its impact on Louisiana motor carriers contracting with independent contractors to deliver cargo in and through California, where California wage and hour laws may be implicated. We will also discuss risk containment strategies for Louisiana motor carriers to consider.

Join us on August 17, 2022 at 9 am via zoom as Drew Burnside with Ogletree Deakins breaks down this decision and how you can best protect your trucking business.

Truckers Against Trafficking Certification

Truckers Against Trafficking (TAT) is a nonprofit organization that trains truck drivers to recognize and report instances of human trafficking. This national organization formed in Oklahoma, United States in 2009 and teaches truck drivers about the results of human trafficking.

TAT produces anti-trafficking materials which are commonly seen throughout the trucking industry. They have teamed up with law enforcement agencies and trucking companies to provide training on identifying sex trafficking, and some companies require their drivers to go through it. Through their efforts, they have freed hundreds of human trafficking victims.

 
According to the National Human Trafficking Resource Center, the majority of truck drivers who report tips learned about them through TAT.

Louisiana Department of Insurance Consumer Complaint Form

We would like to share the Louisiana Department Insurance (LDI) form as a procedure for truckers, and others, who have cameras in their vehicles to be able to file reports when involved in an incident. While we hope it is never applicable for members, it is a useful resource to combat insurance fraud for all in our industry.
