Feds Raid Trucking Company For Forcing Drivers To Falsify Logbooks

Federal agents raided a trucking company in Mt. Crawford, VA on February 12th on charges of forcing drivers to falsify logbooks. Unfortunately, this sort of thing happens all the time, but for it to be happening to such a degree that there’s a raid by federal agents really says something.

The raid was the result of an investigation that has been ongoing since 2006 and came about when workers reported that their supervisors forced them to lie about their hours in order to get paid. Agents said that no less than seven witnesses complained about having to falsify records.
