Pilot Flying J Sued for Defrauding Truckers

Posted by Genie Wood on Fri, May 17, 2013 @ 02:21 PM

Pilot Flying J, the company which manages truck stops throughout the country under the Pilot Travel Centers name, has recently come under scrutiny from the FBI for allegations that some of its sales representatives actively sought to deny truckers rebates to which they were entitled. As a result, several trucking companies have filed suit against Pilot in order to pursue appropriate compensation for their workers.

The suits cite an 120-page filing made by the Federal Bureau of Investigation following a raid on Pilot Flying J’s headquarters on April 15th, 2013, which uncovered evidence of the scheme on the part of Pilot sales personnel to reduce the company’s rebates to truckers in order to boost corporate profits and sales commissions. Pilot’s CEO, James Haslam, has promised that the company will undergo an internal investigation and rebate all those who may have been affected.

Truckers and trucking companies face enough difficulties without being denied the rebates to which they are entitled.
