Do employers pay for the employees liabilities?
1) If an employee is driving a companies car during work and runs down somebody's fence by accident. Who pays for it?
2) If you sent your electrician employee to a clients home and they did a terrible job that ended up causing the home to burn up. Even though he/she received proper training, who pays for it?

Company cars are usually under company auto insurance policies and licensed/bonded contractors also carry insurance for the kind of circumstances you describe. So in both cases it would almost certainly be the business's insurer that had to pay.
