Mis-representation by an Employee

Misrepresentation by an Employee

Didn't find your answer?

We are a specialist company that provides equipment to business via leasing contracts.

We have just received a letter from myleasecheck.com with an analysis of a lease that we provided 2 years ago and it correctly states (unfortunately) that the lease agreement is flawed and that our salesperson (now departed) mis-represented the true cost of the equipment to the client.

We will have to compensate the client £3,250.55

Do we have any right of redress against the former employee?

After a few weeks discussion with HR Lawyers we have been told that we would have little or no chance of recovering any of this money from the past employee.

This is a sobering lesson for any organisation that offers finance to individual consumers or businesses.

Hi there

Sorry you didn't receive an answer here, but thank you for updating us with what you found. It's quite a risk - any examples of processes HR can put in place to stop this happening in the first place would be good to see.

Wishing you all the best

Charlie
