I’m not a know it all so I figure perhaps I’m wrong.
The company hired her on to do team runs with UPS. The did a bait and switch apparently and pushed her into doing some by herself. They tried to stick her with a run from Fort Worth TX to NC and she refused it because she was already in violation from having just done one and there was too much risk taking an 1100+ mile load. The company said she cost them by turning it down so are refusing some of her pay for work she completed. Is this coercion even though they aren’t withholding to MAKE her do one? They are withholding because she refused to.
