Question: What should a driver consider before filing a harassment complaint?

Answer: FMCSA encourages any driver who feels that he or she was the subject of harassment to also consider FMCSA’s coercion rule, 49 CFR 390.6, and the Department of Labor’s whistleblower law, enacted as part of the Surface Transportation Assistance Act (49 U.S.C. 31105), which provides retaliation protection.
