Hello, my name is XXXXX XXXXX it is my pleasure to assist you with your question today.
Does your contract say that they can take that money from your wages?
i realy didit read yeat i just find out that now
so does the contract allow it?
looks like it does ,
that is very high ammount
thay blame driver for any accidents
whilst legally they may eb able to take the money off your wages because they have the contractual right to do so, they still have to justify the amount they are deducting if you challenge them over it. They cannot just pick a figure and take that from you, it must be a genuine sum that they have had to pay for the repair to the damage that has been done. So if you believe that the amount they are claiming is too high based on the accident, then you can make a formal request to be provided with details of how they arrived at that amount and show you bills, etc if needed to show that this was a reasonable and genuine amount
so taht mean i can ask them for all paper work to show me from them insurance .That is very big company so i thought i will be charged just for some excess
Yes. If they used the insurance to pay for the damage then you should only have to pay for the actual losses, such as excess or other additional costs, but not for the full damage as that would have been covered by their insurance - basically they cannot make a profit out of this, it must be actual costs they have spent on the repairs
so tomorrow i have meeting with my boss what about if he will tell me to pay all ammount or leave job if i will not like to do it
i know that situation happen before
How long have you worked there for?
unfortunately you are not protected against unfair dismissal so you could be given an ultimatum of either paying or being sacked - legally they can do this
i have onemore question
if they chrged me for that do they have to proof by blame and my fault
my * sorry
insurance should do some investigatin is it ?
and decided who faut it was
No they do not need to decide whose fault it is, for example they can have a blanket policy that all drivers pay for the damage regardless of fault, then they would just make a claim from the insurance and they will not be looking at whose fault it was especially if it is unknown who the other party was
