PrDP

Does the company need to pay for the renewal of an employee's PrDP or is this for the employee's own account?

It will be for the account of the employee, unless the nature of your business falls under the scope of the National Road Freight and Logistics Industry Bargaining Council. If so then the employer must pay for the fingerprints, medical as well as the application.

Hi there.

Thank you for the reply.

Our business does not fall under the scope of the National Road Freight and Logistics Industry Bargaining Council, however, our drivers are required to have said PrPD in order to drive the heavy duty vehicles (C1) (Iveco Crafters).

All current employee's had a valid PrDP when they joined the company, but has now requested that the company pays for the renewal of their PrDP's.

With that said,
Does the Company have to cover the full cost?
May we refuse to cover this cost?
May we cover half of this cost in order to assist the employee's?

Thank you.

You don't have to pay - however, I think from a human relations perspective it could be a very positive gesture if you paid 50%.
