Some TDLR Licensees Never Imagined They Would Be Caught

An unhappy employee can make or break a company, in some cases, as in these latest round of agreed orders, it was a licensee that could no longer stomach the way their employers operated their business. What we like, is a company’s own employees providing insider information to regulatory agencies, being TDLR, the IRS, TCEQ, DPS CVE, local police departments, and in some instances acting in the capacity of a confidential informant for DEA. With so many law enforcement agencies eager to learn about their local businesses laundering money, paying bribes and crushing stolen vehicles, any business who holds a TDLR license, best think twice how they treat their employees.
