Trucking company arrangement upheld


A driver who owned his truck leased it to a company and entered into a separate employment agreement. The latter allowed him to obtain medical insurance. The issue was whether he had been defrauded because the employment agreement said the employer would pay the employer's share of social security etc. and the effect of the lease agreement was to pass those costs to him. The court upheld summary judgment for the trucking company. Bridges v. Andrews Transport, (Beaumont 10/10/2002).
