Company offers support to driver: This is what they did

When a company advertises itself as being one that supports its employees, one would like to think that they actually mean it. However, this is very rarely the case, as one individual recently learned. The trucking company, Freymiller, inc., is one that often advertises itself as being a company that is, “built by drivers, for drivers.” However, this doesn’t appear to be factual. We have covered this toxic industry in the past. From horrific abuses to not paying drivers, we’ve seen it all. What we haven’t seen, however, is a company that offers an autistic employee a “safe place” only to further trigger, and then terminate, them. What exactly happened? Let’s talk about it.

War on Corruption obtained a variety of documents and recordings from the former employee. According to the documents, his wife had been transported to a local hospital, where doctors didn’t offer much hope in her survival. The reason for this transport: Epilepsy related seizures. Not knowing rather or not his wife would survive, the employee was placed on “emergency medical leave,” this will become very important shortly. While trying to make medical decisions, visiting his wife, who was suffering from a condition known as Postictal psychosis, he was actively working with the company to get a local job. At this point, the company had not made it known that they intended to terminate him.

It is important, at this point, to mention that this employee is on the autism spectrum, this too is about to become important. The company operates a group, to which they said he would be allowed to post. However, upon doing so, they responded to their own initial suggestion by banning him. According to the former employee, he was already triggered and felt, at this point, he was being targeted by the company. He proceeded to reach out to the company’s official Facebook, making the suggestion of autism training. Again, they responded by banning him, furthering his already existing triggers; the company was, in fact, targeting him.

Upon release from the hospital, he proceeded to go back to the company in attempt to discuss a local job. “What they told me was that there were no open positions,” a statement we confirmed via an audio recording he had sent to us. What we do know is that Freymiller lied. How do we know this? This is an image sent to us from their very site, taken moments before the writing of this article.

Now, you recall that we mentioned his emergency medical leave would be important, correct? This is where that is going to apply. Upon telling the former employee that there were no open positions, they than proceeded to terminate him, all of being secretly captured on an audio recorder. They attribute his termination to the very condition that ultimately sent his wife to the hospital. At this point, they there is no indication that he was released from this medical leave, though he did express that he would be returning from it; essentially, he was illegally terminated from his job.

The meeting was conducted with an HR representative and an Operations manager, though the former employee states that he was trying to speak to the owner but was effectively barred from doing so. The two representatives, through this termination, had accomplished two things: the first is getting our attention so that we may spread awareness about companies like this. The second, effectively putting themselves into a potential legal situation. Currently, we are unclear as to what the former employee plans to do, though he has expressed an interest in filing a case against the company. Should this occur, we will update this article.

Alaska airlines targets Trump supporter

Recently, we have seen some rather disturbing trends. Rather it be the vaccinated vs. the unvaccinated or the mask mandate feud, division is one thing that seems to be going strong. For an Alaska airlines passenger, she was not targeted for what she did, but for the style of mask she wore.

Recently, a young woman boarded an unknown Alaska airlines flight, wearing a ‘Trump’ themed mask. While everything began with no issue, it wouldn’t last. A flight attendant, who appeared to have a problem with the mask, requested that she change it. Though she did nothing wrong, the woman complied. However, the event didn’t end there. The flight attendant returned with another, requested the woman the passenger leave the plane. Why? “The crew were uncomfortable with her being onboard.”

Video uploaded to TikTok showing two attendants removing a woman who had initially boarded wearing a Trump mask.

The passenger, seen in the above video, had initially worn a Trump themed mask. Apparently, this was a problem for the flight attendants. From what we have gathered, she was asked to remove the mask, let’s keep in mind that she was not in violation of their mandate. Instead, she was specifically targeted on the grounds of political affiliation.

In a later video, she announced that she did make contact with Alaska Airlines. Their response was, due to lack of a better phrase, “kick rocks.” Our platform also called the airlines and was given a similar response. This form of behavior shouldn’t be tolerated. The airline has not only destroyed their trust and credibility, they also managed to make themselves look like ‘thugs’ in the process.

Unvaccinated people targeted

Virtually, from the time he took office, Biden’s administration can be seen as incompetent, at best. Destroying various laws, purely because Trump passed them, rambling speeches, and let’s not forget the Afghanistan situation, Biden will undoubtedly go down as the worst president. America couldn’t help but wonder what nonsense would he come up with next? Now we know.

For months, he has pressured the 80 million unvaccinated Americans to get the vaccine. When that failed, he resorted to insults, calling them selfish among other things. However, because that also failed, he is now stepping things up. If you refuse to get vaccinated, you will simply lose everything. In what many platforms are calling, ‘a declaration of war against Americans,’ it appears that Biden is going to make moves that will harm his own people.

In his all so wonderful plan, Biden intends to punish unvaccinated individuals by forcing businesses to require the vaccine. Those who refuse, simply can’t work. If this sounds like fascism, that’s because it is. Across the country, protests are breaking out. People, who are fed up with the political nonsense, are demanding that Biden back off, uphold the constitution as he swore. Although this is effective, it appears to be having no effect. Biden, who simply laughs or ignores the American people, seems to be content with doing whatever he wants, and his approval rating has suffered, as a result.

While he, nor his administration seem to care, the people clearly do. Across the country, people are calling for his resignation over the Afghanistan fiasco, people have protested virtually every action taken by this administration, and people have even gone as far as to question his mental competency, some to the point of trying to invoke the 25th amendment. For Biden, the future is unclear. What is clear is he, without doubt, will not serve a second term. For the American people, the future currently seems even more bleak, results that are courtesy of illegal laws being passed by the Biden administration.

Company with notorious past targets employee

Considering everything that we have already heard about the trucking industry, it should come as no surprise that we are targeting a specific trucking company. Because the individual who contacted us is currently employed, we have taken precautions to keep their identity anonymous. With that out of the way, let’s dive in.

John Christner Trucking, LLC. is a company based out of Sapulpa, Oklahoma. Although it is a fairly small company, they are no stranger to abusing their drivers, leaving them just enough money to buy food each week. Aside from extreme low pay the company provides, it has also seen its fair share of lawsuits. In the past three years alone, John Christner has seen nearly a dozen legal actions against it. Before we get into the most recent whistleblower, let’s review some of these lawsuits.

Feb 2020

In February of last year, JCT found itself in the middle of a “misclassification” lawsuit. This case stemmed from more than 3k California based drivers who made multiple accusations against the company. Among the accusations: Working 70-100 hours a week while making less than $500, drivers owing the company money, and violating multiple state and federal labor laws by classifying drivers as “independent contractors” rather than employees. This wasn’t the only lawsuit JCT was faced with.

Mousavi v. John Christner Trucking

In what has to be the most controversial case, among it’s countless others, is this one. On 04-19-2019,  Iranian American, Kazem Mousavi filed a discrimination suit against JCT. In the complaint, he alleged that the company had placed a “in-cab” camera system in his truck, without his consent. He noted that his vehicle was the only one to receive this system. While the company assured him that the camera would only be used in emergency situations, that apparently was not the case.

According to Mousavi, when arriving at the terminal, individuals working in the JCT office made comments regarding his conversations via the phone. In one instance, he was informed that they enjoyed hearing him speak Iranian. All of this, if accurate, would had been a violation of multiple privacy laws. In order to have these cameras inside a truck, the driver must sign a consent form to being recorded. If he had not signed any such form, JCT could had gotten more than a lawsuit. If you wish to read the case in its entirety, you may do so at this link.

The whistleblower that we have been talking to, has made multiple accusations against this company. According to him, they are using threat of income as a means of forcing him into a medical test, one that would violate his religious beliefs. Although he has made this very clear to the company on multiple occasions, they still bring it up. Utilizing his legal rights, he informs our platform that he went for a second opinion, which the company than proceeded to deny accepting the two year medical card. Their reason? They didn’t like the field of practice the doctor was trained in. As with so many other drivers, who have filed lawsuits against JCT, he stated that he drove 3k miles, only to receive a paycheck that wasn’t even $400. He than proceeded to show us his check stub, proving this claim.

We mentioned that he was being pressured into a medical test. Let’s dive a bit more into that. In the trucking industry, there are doctors who try to force drivers into a sleep study; this test is not a federally required test for drivers. Furthermore, it is a test that the driver has to pay out of pocket for. Due to religious beliefs, which prohibit our whistleblower from being connected to machines that may alter/change his life, he opted for a second opinion. During the entire process, he states the company did everything in its power to force the sleep study. When he got the second opinion, they simply refused to accept it, effectively shutting down his source of income until he complied.  So, what is religious discrimination?

The U.S Equal Employment Opportunity Commission  defines religious discrimination as:

Religious discrimination involves treating a person (an applicant or employee) unfavorably because of his or her religious beliefs. The law protects not only people who belong to traditional, organized religions, such as Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, and Judaism, but also others who have sincerely held religious, ethical or moral beliefs.

Under this act, they require companies to make reasonable accommodations to their employees, if their religious beliefs prohibit certain things. In this instance, in our opinion, JCT not only failed to do so, they took the extra initiative in preventing the employee from obtaining an income, resulting in his soon to be resignation.

Behavior like this, regardless of the industry or company, is absolutely atrocious. To treat any person in the manner to which this company’s history implicates is enough that they should had been investigated ages ago. However, like most companies within the trucking industry, there is simply no accountability. Thankfully, our platform has branched out into the business review world. With that, we will happily bring accountability when and where it is owed.
