On January 29, 2016, the federal government began enforcing a new rule entitled “Prohibiting Coercion of Commercial Motor Vehicle Drivers”, or the “Coercion Rule” for short.  The rule prohibits employers from punishing drivers who refuse to operate in violation of certain provisions of the FMCSR.   A common example of driver coercion is when a motor carrier terminates a driver for refusing to accept a load that would require the driver to violate the hours of service requirements.


To assist companies in understanding and avoiding potential driver coercion claims, Setliff & Holland will host a free webinar on April 19, 2016.  The webinar will be presented by Steve Setliff and Ryan Furgurson, and will provide an overview of coercion claims and provide some helpful tips for avoiding and/or defending these claims.
