It would depend on the situation. If it's rejected because of an unclean or contaminated trailer you would almost certainly not get compensated and probably should be on the hook for the product cost and disposal. If this is the case and you're getting by without disposal and cost you should feel very fortunate.

If the product was bad with no fault to the truck, then you should get paid mileage and the stop charge.. Typically whatever the mileage rate was for the original destination.

I can see why David laughs ,
Most shippers and brokers have separate insurance policys that cover such eventualities.
Some carriers do too, however , All aspects of transporting commodities of any type should be negotiated in writing with the shipper or broker , or if your working for the cosigner, then terms should be negotiated with them , rate of pay,fuel surcharges ,demmurage, waiting times, how long it takes to load or unload specific commodities, off spec or contaminated commodities, I could go on and on ,
These are the lessons that come from many years of experience, the shippers and the smart brokers have their ass's covered,and if you dont explicitly cover your own , then of course they are going shift the burden on you. Wouldn't you ?

Spot on for being cautious. Read the contract you sign carefully. And if its a product where there could be an issue with it, get how it is to be handled in writing up front. Don't load anything without knowing the consiquinces. Many brokers will just leave you hanging and care one bit.

And if know one wants to have a plan set up in advance, don't haul it.

I have always been paid for rejected loads

I always double the rate and return to shipper

if its for a dirty trailer than thats on you.... but anymore a trailer wash is the norm for me
