Employment Lawyers Can Answer Your Employment Law Questions
Hello, my name is ***** ***** it is my pleasure to assist you with your question today. When you say he leaves on Fri, is he actually due at work on that day?
If he is due to work on the Fri then assuming there are no specific rules preventing him from taking the van home on a normal day like today, he can do so. It would have been an issue if he took the van with him today and his last day was also today as he would be taking company property with him after his employment has terminated. However, it is also an issue as to what the employer has requested – if they have specifically requested that he does not take it with him then he would be guilty of insubordination and this is a disciplinary issue. The good news is that this is rather irrelevant at this stage as there is little the employer can do in terms of disciplinary action if his last day is tomorrow so he will just leave on a bad note. But it would not affect any money he receives under contract as they cannot withhold that for him doing this.
Hope this clarifies your position? If you could please let me know that would be great, thank you
