Over 125 independent owner-operator truck drivers ("truck drivers") entered into agreements to lease truck tractor units with the option to purchase the leased tractor unit from a Michigan based company ("leasing company"). The truck drivers who entered into the agreements with the leasing company were then obligated to have their leased trucks maintained and repaired at the leasing company's repair facility at prices the truck drivers alleged were inflated. Additionally, the leasing company deducted these maintenance charges and repairs from the compensation due to the truck drivers. The leasing company also required truck drivers to pay escrow funds, but it allegedly failed to keep proper accounting of these funds, failed to account for interest and failed to properly refund these escrow funds.
