    Has driver had any other issues, or accidents . If not then should get job back. If he has had prior accidents, or other discipline out there he could get screwed over.

    The damage to the car was not there previously and the owner of the car is not trying to get $ from UPS?
    Witnesses saw this and reported the driver for this incident?
    At least a few more details would be useful.

    He needs to go in there and own it. There are very few accidents you can be in that you know nothing about. There are even fewer people who will believe him. He needs to go in there tell them sorry own it and take his lumps. Then when he comes back he need to upgrade his game.

    Here is the thing......they will examine the tellamatics , if when this happened he stopped and inspected it.....they will know, if said driver never even slowed and continued about his normal routine. That will show he probably had no idea, I wouldn't lie about it, that would mean no sympathy at hearing.

    Sounds like managment was looking for an excuse to get rid of this driver.
    As an example, if a driver had to use their personal car during peak to say run air.
    The driver opens their door and leaves a door ding on another car, they should report it as an accident? If not, risk being fired?
    Not saying it is ok to damage the property of others, but in the case of a barely noticeable nick or ding......

    Hypothetical , say he did stop and saw no damage and kept going thinking nothin of it and is honest about "showed by telematics " what then?

    Screwed for dishonesty . Report everything . We don't get paid for our decision making ability ,we get paid to work as directed. Always let management make that determination .

    Several years ago I pulled into a parking lot. Whipped the truck around to back into an open parking space so I wouldn't block anyone in. (Busy lot) Got the package and as I stepped out to go inside business a lady tells me I hit her car. I said no I didn't. She points to her bumped and says I DID hit it. There was an obvious mark on the corner of her bumper. I looked on the corner of my bumper and there was a scuff mark there. Put 2 and 2 together and I guess I really did hit the car. Never felt it. Didn't hear it. But the marks were there. I owned up to it and called a Sup. They came out and investigated it. Charged me with my first accident but I didn't get into any trouble. Don't even remember getting a warning letter. Sup asked me later that evening what I could have done different. I said I could have called in this morning.

    Moral of the story, Own up to your mistakes and you'll be better off in the long run.

    That is definition of not reporting an accident. He would be fired for dishonesty. That is why if you do get in an accident of any type, report it!!!! You won't get fired. But you will if you try to hide it.
