A courier driver was fired after a random audit revealed improper billing practices.

J.A. was a dependent contractor employed as a courier by Loomis Express. J.A. was hired in 2005. Previous discipline did not factor into his termination on July 4, 2011.

Like the other courier drivers employed by the company — both hourly employees and owner/operators — J.A. worked a regular route in a defined service area.
