California-based regional drivers, represented by Hagens Berman, accused Schneider National Carriers Inc. of failing to pay all wages, mileage, and benefits required by state labor laws.

U.S. District Court Judge Jeffrey S. White recently appointed attorneys from Hagens Berman to serve as lead counsel for the proposed class of current and former regional drivers in the class-action lawsuit against Schneider National. Judge White also appointed the Marlin & Saltzman firm to represent dedicated and intermodal drivers against Schneider National in a consolidated action with the regional drivers.

Schneider National drivers claim they were required to work long hours with few breaks and for pay that failed to adequately compensate them for all wages due. According to the complaint, drivers were obligated to wait for customers and new assignments without proper compensation for their time. The company also denied drivers compensation for time spent inspecting vehicles and completing daily paperwork, internal documents show.

In addition to the alleged failure to pay its drivers proper wages for non-driving work time, Schneider National allegedly paid mileage rates based on computerized estimates that routinely fell below the actual distances driven en route, the lawsuit states.

Attorneys believe that Schneider National grossly violated California’s labor laws and deprived its drivers’ of proper wages, accurate employment records, itemized wage statements and wages due at termination.

Hagens Berman seeks to recover lost wages and benefits to which regional drivers were entitled under California labor laws.
