Insurance Excess

Unread post by Mc Safe » 20 Feb 2015, 07:22

May an Employer request and implement that Employees are required to pay the insurance excess for damage to any company vehicle and/or property if such damaged is caused due to negligence by an Employee? Accidents happen and the company is very lenient in this regards i.e. genuine accidents and 3rd party caused damaged is covered by the company, but if the accident/damage is caused by Employee negligence, is the company well within their rights to expects an employee to pay for the insurance excess for said claim?

Yes. But the employer will have to hold a disciplinary hearing, and the employee has to agree.
