Pay the excess? No!

We’ve written to Eskleigh to tell them we don’t agree that their changes to the motor vehicle policy are enforceable. 

The new policy says, “Damage that is sustained, and is deemed to be the fault of the Eskleigh driver, Eskleigh reserves the right to charge the employee the applicable insurance excess fee, or the repair costs whichever is the lesser amount.”  

We believe that if you are unfortunate enough to have an accident while performing your duties at Eskleigh then your employer or their insurer should pay the costs. 

Remember that Eskleigh cannot deduct any funds from your pay without your consent! 

Hope this clears up any concerns.
