Go find a lawyer

I work at a labor rights organization and one of my associates has a relative who has worked for Priority Express as a contract driver. So I started looking online and been following postings about PE with interest. Especially the ones from contractors looking to bring lawsuits against PE. You all need to read your contracts carefully. If you’re a 1099 contractor you have no company employee rights or benefits. You can bring individual suits against specific contract violations. So start keeping a paper trail of all the ways your scammed. You can also sue the individual dispatchers/managers who keep deceiving and stringing you along into one lousy paying load after another. They know they’re taking advantage of you for as long as they can before you quit, so as agents of the company they’re liable for defrauding you in addition to the company. Better yet, organize and bring a class action lawsuit against PE. You all need to compare notes first. From what I’ve read online many of you have similar complaints. Even if the contract is written in such a way as to make it difficult to prove individual violations, in a class action lawsuit the group has to demonstrate that PE managers consistently engage in deceptive practices intended to defraud contractors (i.e., they know you’re going to lose money on a load yet they BS you into taking it, sometimes by force dispatching you like company drivers). FedEx contractors sued because FedEx treated them like company drivers. Organize online, compare notes. Just because you signed a contract doesn’t mean you consented to being scammed. And the company seems to be engaging, for a long time now, in a pattern of deceptive practices intended to defraud contractor drivers.
