    On Friday the 13th of this month my terminal manger disqualified me as a driver. My contractor had informed me that morning that a complaint had came in on me. It said a customer said they saw me throw a package over their fince. I told my contractor that package was 75lbs and I did not throw it. After I came in from my route I was called in by the terminal manager and he told me he was disqualifying me as a driver due to that customers complain and many other he said I had. But I told him I am only aware of 3 complaints and asked him to show me the other. He did not have them and told me he could give them to my contractor at a later date.
    I just really need help on what to do Thank you

    You should find another job at a reputable company.

    if you have 3 prior complaints he is probably justified in his decision if the complaints are all the same

    Find a lawyer. Anything the Ground division does is suspect....
  6. Another BS account ...
  7. And if not, it sounds like your DQ was justified ..

    You probably should not post your picture and/or location. You obviously work for a bad contractor if your story is truthful, which should be a clear signal to get out. If you want to fight it, get an attorney and have them write you a letter that outlines what you've said and that you have been wrongfully disqualified. I notice that you don't say "terminated", but please keep in mind that your TM is a FedEx employee...your contractor is not. So, your issue is also with the corporation.

    And I thought you had to be REAL bad to get fired from ground, like murder, rapes and arson...
    Do you have any ink?
    If not, perhaps that's why....

    3 prior complaints..ha ha! It's like telling a judge "Don't take my license away, those last three speeding tickets are not an indication that I should not be allowed to drive.

    So all it takes is to observe a ground driver delivering a package, remember the address he's at, and call saying he threw something? 3 anonymous calls and he'll be fired without investigation. That's a lot of power to give someone who's having a bad day and wants to crap on someone else.

    I understand what you are say but it was just one person that called in and no there was no ininvestigation before I was disqualified as a driver. So if I may reword my question what can I do to fight this?

    If you didn't throw the package over the fence how did it get over the fence? I'm not ragging on you, just trying to understand the complaint of the customer. Did they say it's on video or anything? Or is this just your word against theirs? I have to say usually at Express they usually take the couriers side on this type of deal. If it's a big shipper then you can be in trouble for coughing funny.

    You are an 'at will' employee of a contractor. If you were fired during peak, they are going to make it stick.

    Move on.

    Just my experience Mr 7. I'm just talking about resi complaints. Not business customers.

    Fedex has nothing to do with your firing. If they disqualify you from driving under the operating agreement with your contractor then you still have a job, technically. Since you work for the contractor he can still use you for his business and not use you within the fedex system.

    Also, there is nothing in the contract that says a driver will be disqualified for complaints. The company cannot dq you for complaints. They CAN terminate the agreement with your contractor. He likely got threatened for your complaints and got rid of you. I would have dumped you after the second (if within a reasonable time frame). 4 is ridiculous.
