Rocor Violated Leasing Regs, Judge Says
July 17, 2000
After being hit with two lawsuits filed by the Owner Operators Independent Drivers Association, Oklahoma City-based Rocor International has been found in violation of federal leasing regulations by an Oklahoma district court.
A case filed against Rocor in June 1998 by OOIDA questioned the company’s coverage of owner-operators under its self-insured Workers Compensation Insurance program, as well as whether or not they charged owner-operators for the coverage and violated federal truth-in-leasing regulations.
A second case, filed in March of this year, involves certain actions pertaining to Rocor’s ROCLease program, but a ruling has yet to be issued.
A phone call from Truckinginfo.com to Rocor International for comment on the lawsuits was not returned.
