I've read your postings and they are both very difficult to hear about. Amy, does the company your friend works for have an HR department? He should first report to them the issues that he is having with management. If no relief comes from there he can go to the local EEOC center and file a complaint with them. Normally the HR department will take care of these issues but if it is a small business they may not have the people to do so.
I work in a large corporation that has about 16,000 employees at about 300 locations around the country. (In trucking also). They have a great HR department that works well with the employees to take care of these issues.
He works for SDI (Steel Dynamics Inc.) so it is a very large company. He works for a small division here in Southwestern Virginia. I've asked him about going to some sort of HR dept. but hes just not sure how to get in touch with them. He didn't really go to school when he was a child because his mother abandoned him when he was just 9. He only got to the 5th grade and doesn't read very well and can hardly keep up with things going on in the paper work portion of a business.
But there is some good news. He did stand up for himself and told his boss how he felt and how the thought they were treating him and they have been pretty nice to him since. Nice enough that he has decided not to retire in august but to keep working until the end of 2008. We'll see how things go in the next few months. Maybe they just needed someone to stand up for themselves before they quit picking on people.
