Investigation and pending class action lawsuit against trucking company Swift Transportation on behalf of all employee truck drivers.
The class action lawsuit seeks recovery for an alleged years-long practice of shortchanging drivers for the actual miles they drive from location to location. The class action lawsuit claims that Swift ignores reports from drivers showing the actual miles driven, and instead uses an artificial calculation that credits drivers for significantly fewer miles. Comparing one trucker's actual miles driven to the miles paid for by Swift show the company reducing trips by up to 140 miles when paying the trucker, the suit claims. According to the complaint, Swift used this shortchanging practice for several years, and other major trucking companies may also have engaged in this unfair, illegal tactic.
The suit seeks to represent all Swift Transportation drivers employed on or after 1998 and who were paid on the basis of miles driven.
