    As any ltl driver knows, some customers are required by their big bosses to stamp all company bills with "subject to inspection" or something to that degree. I've got a few small customers on my route that also do that. We are required by our terminal manager to give these bills over to him or the ops manager. They then white out whatever was stamped or written(exception is os&d notations as long as it has an exception number) then they make a copy and dispose of the original.

    Seems quite fraudulent but after 10+ years nothing really suprises me anymore.

    Sounds like it's your tm not the company, in the end it really doesn't matter, customer has his copy.

    It's called falsifying company documents and is supposed to be a terminable offense

    Personally, I would just leave them in with the rest of the bills. If the TM wants to scam, you will be no part of it

    He'll deny doing it and blame the driver if he's ever caught.

    It will be many years before sefl will be able to union. Our guys here wouldn't risk losing a paycheck. Things will have to get really really bad for that to happen. It would be nice to have some protection from termination. This company has Some good things, but you can't enjoy the job due to the operations side having to make their bonus numbers by overloading the routes risking injury and accident

    I could care less what customer stamps on the bill, with a non confrontational policy, you just let them do what they want and let the account manager and terminal manager handle it.
