Devon Seeling, of Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, has filed a civil lawsuit against Moorhead, Minnesota-based AM-PM Trucking LLC, which maintains an office in Underwood, North Dakota.
Seeling stated that he regularly worked more than 60 hours per week on many occassions. The filed lawsuit says rather than pay overtime for more than 40 hours of work, the company paid Seeling and other drivers a percentage of the revenue generated by each truckload. This type of pay is far less then what Seeling would have made earning time-and-a-half pay.
The complaint seeks an unspecified amount for damages. Seeling is asking for class action status for drivers who have worked for AM-PM Trucking in the last three years. If Seeling was done like that, you can bet your bottom dollar that other AM-PM Trucking employees were done the same way.
Several media sources have tried to reach out to AM-PM Trucking, including Truckers Logic. At this time, no representative for the trucking company will speak on the subject.
