Should a person be fired for Art 17D if the accident was not their fault and the other person received traffic violations?
Race, after reading your replies I can't help but ask myself... why in the world would anyone want to drive a package car?
There was a police report. The other driver received 2 violations. No violations here.
Kind of unavoidable when you are being hit on the side at 35 mph.
Received a termination letter on 3rd day of suspension.
Had to beg for the job back. Been there 28 years.
Race, after reading your replies I can't help but ask myself... why in the world would anyone want to drive a package car? That seems like such an incredible hassle to deal with. Even if you're safe and not at fault the sheer amount of pressure would drive me nuts.
Well, maybe, but not really. There are always extenuating circumstances, not the least of which, who you have investigating these things.
We had one investigator here that took so many headers, they had to take him off CSI team. He's now taken off driver-trainer list also because of almost killing a pedestrian during a mgr/sup audit.
Besides, go back and read some of questions again. Were they there to witness entire proceding? NO. So, when asked, "Did you take proper action?", what do you say?
I hope you didn't take my reply as a criticism of your post. I was merely trying to state that I had no clue there was so much involved.
