it's the shop's responsibility to pay for damage to a customer's vehicle. The customer brought the car to your your shop, not the employee's shop, now however you get that money back out of your employee is up to you.

I agree the shop should take care of it but I think it should come out of the empoyees check :bingo

If they are hourly employees, then the shop should pay. If they are commissioned, then they pay the percent of the split. If they are more of a problem than they are worth, pink slip time.

Even good/great employees stray every once and a while. As managers, it is your job to help control and console these people. Employees who are very profitable get more leeway.

This has been my philosophy, but I am open to debate. If you are making good profit I think it is best to put it with cost of doing business(to a point).

IMO...I think accidents happen..so I think the shop owner should pay for it...BUT..if it is something that happen on a regular basic...then let the employee know..maybe have a "three strikes and you are out" policy..I think doing this..you are letting the employee know that you don't tolerate that..plus ..it will give the employees to think about things a little better before taking things apart or getting in a seat with a knife in the pocket or laying blades around
