We had a driver in our building just receive notice that a payroll deduction would be started on his earnings to reimburse the company on a COD he collected. The package was originally sent NDA to a campgrounds in the amount of $1098.00. The route driver was unable to make contact with the customer and a delivery notice was left. The driver received a message to pull the package that evening as a "will call". Follow me so far? A bid coverage driver, working as the morning clerk the next day, accepted the check from the customer who came in to pick the package up. The customer made the check out to the wrong shipper for the correct amount. The check was sent on to the correct shipper and an attemp to cash the check was made. It was returned to the company due to insufficient funds. All attempts to pick up a new check (money order or cashiers check in this case) were futile and UPS was stuck with the bad check. The owner of the campgrounds (aka as the guy who wrote the bad check) has left town, his Hummer and truck have been repossessed and he is nowhere to be found. My question is, does this driver has any recourse or protection from having to pay the $1098.00? All your thoughts would be appreciated!
