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 His CDL has not been revoked, marked for watching, disqualified.

it sounds more like company policy, regardless as to whether it is following a "Federal gov recommendation".

So, this doctor cannot claiom "Federal Law". He needs to either revise his findings, or point to the actual rule, wherever it is enshrined.

So, does this company have a habit of disappearing drivers at the least excuse, or what?

Well, not that kind of history. Of course, they do all they can to make as much money as they can. About the doc, I don't know.

Contracts get slightly worse every new contract, but they generally treat their employees 'fairly'.

I think the doc is a DOT Certified doc, and we're not going to get around this if we don't step outside the DOT Certified docs.

is it possible the companys insurance company has this in the policy and the doctor is just complying with that?
