KLLM Drivers File Class-Action Misclassification Suit

Two truck drivers have filed a class-action suit against KLLM Transport Services claiming that the company misclassified them as independent contractors. Though the suit was filed on behalf of just two truckers — one from California and the other from Florida — the class action status of the suit would include other KLLM drivers who may have been misclassified.

Port truck drivers keep America moving.

From our shores to every store, port drivers are the first or last leg of the journey for what becomes the clothes on our backs, the food on our table, the shoes on our feet, plus the few remaining products we ship overseas. Stuck in the shadows until now, port drivers are fighting back against mistreatment and misclassification. Forced to pay for their bosses’ business costs like fuel, truck lease payments, liability insurance, even parking – you name it the cost is deducted from their paychecks – means some weeks drivers have to literally pay to work, creating modern-day sweatshops, just on wheels.  We all pay the cost:  tired drivers means unsafe roads; old and poorly maintained trucks means polluted unhealthy air; and industry tax fraud means taxpayers pick up the tab.  Support the courageous effort America’s port drivers are making to bring back good jobs, safe roads and healthy air.
