I work in sales and have a company car provided to me by my company. Due to my work schedule driving around NSW, I failed to get the car serviced for over a year and when I finally got a chance to put it in the mechanic's, the engine was ruined and they had to replace it costing a reported $8,000. I was told that I wouldn't have to pay any of it and given a warning in relation to the situation. However, I recently decided to quit and move jobs and now the company is withholding my annual leave payout of $3,500 to pay for the damage to the car. In your opinion, do you think I am liable under employment law for the damage? They didn't have the processes in place to ensure that I got the car serviced and they set the busy work schedule. They wouldn't be charging me if I wasn't leaving the company. Are they allowed to withhold my annual leave payout for this?
