Lessons Learned from Florida 2018
At the 2018 Florida Tow Show, Michael McGovern and I were pleased to present our seminar on human resources issues in the tow industry. Much of this seminar was spent discussing wage payment practices. In reflecting on the seminar, I was again reminded of the many unique features of the tow industry regarding the payment of wages to tow drivers. Many employees are paid on a commission. Most work is done “outside the office.” Many employees take trucks home at night and on the weekends. Add to this the fact that there are actual laws specific to the tow industry for the payment of overtime wages. All in all, human resources in the tow industry are complicated to say the least.
