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.

    Those situations are what insurance is for. The want ads are what you'll need to find your next job.
