    I work for fedex freight and yesterday i was sent home becuase i got into a accident, no one got hurt or injured dont even need to see a doctor but the accident caused one of the forklift light to come off. So now im scared because my boss sent me home and had me fill out a accident report, therefore im waiting on his call becuase he emailed the safety office. my question is what will happen next am i fired? and are they going to make me take a drug test like i said no one got injured.

    I hate to tell you, but I don't think there are any FedEx Freight people on here. It's pretty much Express, Ground and HD.

    I have no experience with this. I can GUESS though that they will probably just write you up for it. But I could be totally wrong. It's a light. I can't see them firing you for something so trivial.

    And a drug screen can happen at anytime if your job involves heavy equipment.

    You seem awfully worried about the drug test... Would you test positive for something??? lol

    You could still be tested depending on circumstances, how's your past safety record? They may be checking to see if they discharge you or send for drug test, the best way to pass a drug test is to study for it.

    Anyone in my building that has had an accident be it an employee or driver has been sent for a drug test.

    Posting the particulars here is not a wise move. this site is monitored by fedex. and I'm hoping you are using a fake name.

    There's gotta be about a hundred and eighty-two thousand people named JOESPH Lamb at FedEx

    Very minor. No sense losing sleep over it. Heck once on a check ride with my manager, a dead tree branch broke and landed on the hood. My manager still made a notation in Qwest (?) that I had to sign off. No damage, no pee test; nothing but my manager still wanted to cover his behind.

    You sound afraid. For those of you who don't know it, Freight is managed just like Express, so all of the usual BS and games apply in full. FedEx Freight also sucks, because it is now a clone of Express.

    Nah, safety policy is automatic suspension for any safety violation, same protocol as puncturing hazmat. you'll get a few days off, come back, watch the training videos and be "re-certified" it'll go in your file as a safety violation tho so try to avoid doing that again or anything else like that because after 3 they can fire you.

    Your supervisors don't actually make the call on when you come back, their report goes to HR and your regional HR manager decides when you come back. There's also some re-certification CBEs

    Been at Freight a few years, I'd be lying if I said I didn't love it there.
