Truck driving felons

by Joe

I can find nothing under the FMCSA regulations prohibiting a company from hiring a felon for any conviction other than illegal substances i.e. using or transporting them in a cmv in which case their license is revoked barring them from driving anyway. Please direct me to this section.

I just found this article and I am totally enlightened in doing research I found just what you guys had already found so now what I intend to do is put together a letter reminding those that don't ecknowledge this code to be reminded sounds like discrimination to me.

Thanks for responding Billy. I had already read the section you cited. If you'll notice there is time passage language (7 & 5 yrs) regarding the crimes in these sections. It's the crimes in the previous section that are permanently disqualifying. So all hope is not lost. If you'll notice on the list of companies that hire felons the waing list is mostly 7 yrs. minimum.
