Religious truck driver terminated from his post
Rio Grande Valley, Texas resident and veteran truck driver Ramiro Olivarez claimed he was fired from his position as a truck driver by his employer, Falfurrias-based On Point Services, for repeatedly writing “Jesus” as the name of his co-pilot, the Daily Mail reported on February 14.
The company uses this paperwork to validate performance records. Olivarez said that he was not asked to stop doing this prior to dismissal. Olivarez, who has written “Jesus” in as his co-pilot for his entire career, asserted that he would have complied with his employer’s order to stop doing this if any order had been given.
Olivarez’s termination papers said he broke federal and state laws by repeatedly using the name “Jesus” as the name of his co-pilot. Olivarez was also accused of submitting incomplete documentation and falsifying legal documents.
