Ruh-roh, raggy, more than 400 truckers sue John Christner Trucking, a Sapulpa-based Oklahoma trucking company, for violating California and federal labor laws. Landlinemag.com explains some of the complaints in the suit, as follows:
“Despite classifying drivers as ‘independent contractors,’ John Christner Trucking treats plaintiff and drivers as employees,” the 2017 complaint stated. “John Christner Trucking bars drivers from engaging in business with anyone other than John Christner Trucking … Additionally, John Christner Trucking exercises significant control over, among other things, the way that drivers performed their job duties, the tools and equipment drivers are required to use to perform their job duties, drivers’ rate of pay, and drivers’ ability to work for any other businesses.”
