OH saw the company doctor today in response to his employer's requirement to return to work. His own physicians have released him to drive, and to return to work. The company doc refused to release him, based solely on some Federal law supposedly stating that commercial drivers are disqualified from driving for 1 year after a stroke.

I've spent all afternoon googling this supposed law, and can't find anything but recommendations to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration.

Any help I can get finding this law will be highly appreciated. Negating its existence would be better still...

*sighs*

He hasn't been disqualified. His CDL has not been revoked, marked for watching, disqualified.

But, per my edit, he hasn't been disqualified. His CDL is active. Checked it today...

give a thumb for that, but it's a Federal Bureaucracy Contact link. We'll have lost our asses by the time I get off hold, or get a relevant email response. :0 :^0

Wouldn't surprise me that he's being pushed into retirement.

and right now any way you can reduce the payroll is what most companies want, I do believe management may want to go for it.

Sad, but possibly true.

Just recommendations, no driving for a year recommended.

I saw where it appears the possibility of a second stroke drops off hugely in the first 6 to 7 months, then moves down slowly from there.

To prove a negative is just about not possible.

Found this, way down toward the end of the article they talk about health issues.

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration has not acted on the proposal.

Looking for things like this.
