With 2012 drawing to completion our benefits and payroll teams are hard at work preparing for the upcoming benefit year. 2013 will have 53 payroll cycles, and this makes it an odd year because our benefit deductions are taken over a 52-week period.  Because of this oddity everyone will in effect have a "Deduction Holiday" - one pay check (dated 1/4/2013) where there will be no regularly scheduled benefit deductions taken other than those for 401k elections. This will affect all insurance benefits and the Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA). ...

FirstFleet Drivers: Thank you for doing a great job as we are implementing electronic logs and electronic DVIRs. It has been a learning process for all of us, and we appreciate all of your efforts as we work out any kinks. Maintenance has brought one item to our attention regarding electronic DVIRs which we need to address. It is EXTREMELY important for us to correctly specify whether or not a DVIR is SAFETY related. The easiest way to answer this question is to ask yourself, “Does this defect present a safety risk if left unaddressed?” I...
