There are an estimated 14 million grey fleet vehicles on UK roads being used for business journeys. Regardless of the reason for the journey – whether your employee is driving to a customer meeting half way across the country or driving to the shop to pick up milk during the working day – their private car insurance must cover them for business use.
Our experience at Selenity is that not all employees have the right cover. In helping our customers we’ve discovered a disturbing trend – we’ve found that 21 percent of drivers are failing our insurance checks and may not be eligible to drive for work purposes, that’s one in five motorists.
It’s a shocking set of statistics that points to an issue that business owners shouldn’t be ignoring – their employees are breaking the law, either inadvertently or potentially on purpose.
In our new Grey Fleet Review, Adam Bamford – Expedite Services Manager at HR and Finance specialists Selenity – looks at what processes need to be put in place to demonstrate that you are meeting your duty of care obligations.
