DH got his boss fired

Because he made a complaint about her to the owners of the company

DH delivers dangerous goods (lpg gas mostly) and there are very strict laws when it comes to that. They are only allowed to work a certain amount of hours legally in one day. Over that amount of time he can get fined and his company can get fined. It isnt a small fine either. He has had a coworker personally get a $100,000 fine for breaking the laws on this. 

The problem is that his boss was purposely scheduling him to do way more than he could do in the legal amount of time he could work. When he brought up concerns all she did was tell him to work faster or lie about his start time. 

He has been over worked and exhausted and wasnt willing to risk the fine. So he complained to the owner when she refused to even talk to him about it. His boss was fired right away when they found out his claims were true. He isnt the only driver she has been doing this to but DH was the only one who was willing to do something about it. He never thought they would fire her but he is glad that everyone is following the laws now 

People dont like him because of this because she was well loved but he says he would rather people hate him than someone hurt themselves and others because they are trying to do too much work. Plus if it says just one person from getting a fine it will be worth it. 

His boss sent him a really nasty message saying she thought he was the best driver they had but clearly he was nothing more than a POS. He didnt respond but he really wanted to tell her to go fuck herself

My DH also drives and he doesn’t give a crap if he makes his company mad. He abides by the DOT rules. He’s not willing to pay a fine. He’s had to park his truck on the side of the road more than once and wait for them to come get him and leave a relief driver.
Good for your DH for standing up to her.

No.  That fine is not true.  Not even close.  Yes, there are fines, but not like that.  The rest of the post sounds like wishful thinking.  (And yes, I have family members who work in the same industry and they say you are full of it.)

The fines can easily be that much. 

It depends on where you live, what you are carrying, and a bunch of other things

That's one of the reasons dh got out of the trucking industry. To many people willing to bend the rules and excepting him to also.

Good for him! She's a sorry sack of shit asking him to put his career on the line like that. I'm glad the higher ups took it seriously.

Sounds more like his boss got herself fired for having a blatant disregard for the law, and putting the owners of the company in a very bad position.  I would not feel sorry for her one bit.  She had balls to send that message to your husband.

He did NOT get her fired.  Her own actions got her fired.
