The legal problems that can arise from employees who drive during their employment are too numerous and varied to mention. This workbook is designed to touch upon some of the more common issues and problems employers encounter from employees who drive.

This workbook will provide a general overview of such issues as licensing requirements, drug and alcohol testing, the employer pull notice program, mileage reimbursement, insurance, driving policies to prevent accidents, and employer liability for accidents. This is only meant as an overview and the appropriate course of action for any employer is usually best determined on a case-by-case basis.
