As communicated via blog earlier this week and via email to all managers a few weeks ago, the quarterly safety bonus payments to our drivers changed to a direct deposit process this week and are included in the drivers' pay today.

Per IRS Publication 15 on bonus payments, any type of bonus payment, which would of course include safety bonus checks, must either be taxed a flat 25% or, alternatively, must be incl...

Fatigue can be responsible for all different kinds of accidents…from hitting a yellow pole in a parking lot to a rollover accident due to ...
