Charging for company property
I hope someone can help with this. We have a guidebook that some of our employees are required to keep with them while performing their jobs. Everyone in this position is issued a book. They were fairly expensive to produce and our manager wants to have the employees sign an agreeement that they will have to pay back the amount of the book if they lose/destroy it. Can we charge someone for this? Do we treat this like we would a uniform?
Thanks for your help!! Any advice would be appreciated.
