One consequence of the CSA rules is the availability of information abut past accidents and bad driving incidents for individual truckers. This is causing them to be fired or released by their firms, or perhaps not hired if they are owner-operators. But a New Jersey court has found that they cannot be denied unemployment if they are put out of work by this data. Couple that with the fact that they may be considered employees, by some courts, even if they are independent owner operators, and we may see an upward tick in unemployment claims!
