WASHINGTON (CN) – To discourage “job hopping,” or abandoning one job for another once a drug or alcohol violation is received, truckers and other commercial drivers’ violations may be released to state licensing authorities, according to a new Transportation Department regulation.
When a state law requires violation reporting, drivers’ employers now may release the information.
The rule also allows independent licensing companies to provide the same information to state licensing authorities where state law requires them to do so for owner-operator drivers.
