An employee of mine, who has recently left, has just put a claim in for compensation against my business. I would appreciate your opinions on the case.
He was driver of a Nissan Primastar, lawn mowers were put in side door. The staff have always secured the lawnmowers in place with bungee cords, although I don't think this was neccessary. The member of staff in question removed the bungee cord from the handle and the mower drive lever for Honda HRB536C flicked back and hit him on his front teeth. He has now left and is claimimg compensation.
There is a lot of other stuff going on around this person and other staff but, at the end of the day, is he entitled to compensation?
He has worked on and off for me for two years and was used to the system in place.
I will answer any other questions you may want to ask about the case to help you in your opinions.
