A former Oregon trucker has reached an undisclosed
settlement with Roadway Express after the company refused to re-hire him after
he was honorably discharged from the Army.
According to The Oregonian newspaper, Kevin Brown
enlisted in the Army after working for a year as a driver and dock worker at
the company's Portland, OR, operation.
The company reportedly demanded his resignation when he left
and refused to re-hire him when he was discharged for medical reasons.
A Roadway attorney said the confidential settlement was
"acceptable to both parties," according to media reports.
