Should a company have to pay to send you home if you leave? It depends. It has recently been brought to my attention that companies are firing drivers and leaving them stranded wherever they are. First I want to say, you should always have access to a couple hundred dollars to get you home because you just never know. Here is what I think about the situation:
If you give notice, they should bring you back to the yard and everyone is nice about it.
If you just up and quit on the road, it is on you to get yourself back to your house.
If they simply fire you without notice on the road, it should be their responsibility to get you and all your belongings safely to your home at their expense. Unfortunately, that does not always happen.
I'll do a video about this soon.
See you on the road!
