4.1.4 Employee Coercion (390.6)

Carriers, brokers, and other parties in the logistics chain are explicitly prohibited from threatening, taking, or permitting an adverse employment action against a driver in order to make that driver violate regulations described in 49 CFR 390.6(a)(1) and (2). To constitute coercion, the driver must either state that the conditions would require him or her to violation the regulation, or be punished for refusing to violate the regulation.

Drivers who believe they were coerced into violating regulations described in 49 CFR 390.6(a)(1) or (2) may file a written complaint as explained in 49 CFR 386.12 or may obtain more information on filing a written complaint by calling 1-800-DOT-SAFT (1-800-368-7238). For more information, visit FMCSA’s National Consumer Complaint Database.
