    Company charging me for damage of official laptop

    When I joined my current company I was provided with a used laptop of previous employee. The laptop was troubling me since one year but somehow I managed. Last month it got totally dead for which my company charged me the full cost of the lap top. Is this the right attitude of the employer?

    Hi,
    The matter is not at all acceptable... and as you said the attitude is not correct...
    The company can't recover the cost of any laptop from the employee when the same is given for office work...
    Again the full amount can't be recovered from employee ( that is also old one)....
    Company can charge the WDV amount in case you lost the same or intentionally brock the same...

    You should raise your voice to your boss and if that same is not happen send a mail to HR and ask for the reason for recovery.

    Hi friend …
    If you are troubling with the laptop since from last year then you have to complain about the laptop to the office in the initial stage when you are joined the company. Because the company thinks that you are the person who damages the laptop because when the company provides you the laptop in a good condition and it is totally damaged so they are charged for it from you. But you can be saying that it was recently used by other and now I am also used now if you sold the laptop in the market may be getting received half money then why you are taking the full price of this laptop.
    Thanking you hopes you like my suggestion…..

    Dear,
    The attitude of you employer is not good at all.
    You should complain about it to your boss, it is not right in his part.
    You can ask him that you can pay for repairing of the laptop, but you will not pay the whole amount.
    You have to little bit bold while keeping your point. otherwise remember your boss is exploiting you.

    Hi aspirant

    You should definitely not have sit quietly in this situation and should have done something to get justice in this case. Your employer has no right to charge you the full cost of the laptop as it was already used by a previous employer when you received it. They should have kept this thing in m ind and should not have treated you unfairly in this manner. It was not your fault that the laptop went dead and so you should not have paid for it.

    You should go and speak to the higher authorities and get this matter clarified. Tell them that when you joined this company , you were provided with a used laptop of a previous employee. The laptop was troubling you since one year but you managed somehow. But when it became dead your company charged you for it. You don't think this is fair and hope that they will look into this matter and do full justice with you by refunding you your money.

    I am sure that your higher ups will definitely provide you with justice in this matter. Good luck and thanks

    Dear Aspirant,

    Really it is very sad to know your position.It is true that no one can survive without believing others,but believing blindly is also not good.When you have been provided with such old laptop & it was troubling you ,you should have given in writing to your boss.If you had done this action,you would not have any problem by now.

    Now you can also say the same thing that you were provided with a old laptop which was not functioning well right from your receipt.See what replies you get.If your plea is not considered positively,you will have to bear the cost of the laptop.Though it is not fair,but being an employee,you can not work peacefully having not good term with the management.

    Your second option is to sue the matter for which you should have evidence of not functioning your laptop well since the time of handing over the same to you which I don't think you have.

    So better to settle the matter as easily as possible.


    Thanks & good luck.

    Hello,

    You should never pay the laptop price as it was not in good shape when
    you received it. It's a very unfair from your company to charge you with
    such punishment. You need to talk to higher authorities immediately and
    try to explain your point of view. If if they don't entertain you then you
    have to pay the price for your job sake.

    Bye,

    dear friend

    this is not a good thing, so you
    must take an action to come out
    of such situation, i am sure that
    after joining when you got the laptop
    you had told the seniors about the
    situation of the laptop. so call that
    senior and ask him that you already
    had told him the bad situation of the
    laptop.

    hope this will help you

    Dear Friend

    It is totally wrong how employer can ask for full payment of damaged laptop from newly employed employee.

    Do not worry ,talk about this matter with your boss and if your boss is ready to solve your problem then it is o.k.

    But if your boss also denies to solve your problem then a mail or discuss this matter with the senior head or general manger of your company ,they will surely refund your amount.If they also refuses to do so then go to the consumer court .

    You will surely get justice there .

    Hope the information helps as well as satisfies you .If you have any further query regarding this then please leave it here.

    All the best

    The behaviour from your employer is not at all professional and correct. Firstly you need to make sure that whenever you receive any thing from Company, you are required to convey the present condition of that item to appropriate authorities. I can't able to understand that when you was facing problem in laptop it's your duty to report it to authority so that they can repair it. BUT when it's got dead taking the original cost for recovery is not right because it had become second hand, so the written down value need to be taken. Pass it to higher authority so that action can be taken.

    You should not have stay gently in this case and may have performed anything to get the legal on this case. A person's manager has no straight to impose a fee all of the valuation on notebook mainly because it had been used by a previous manager if you received it. They will possess maintained this thing in mirielle ind and should not possess handled a person unfairly on this manner. It had not been your own fault which notebook journeyed lifeless and so you shouldn't possess settled it.

    A person runs as well as communicate towards higher professionals as well as buy this matter clarified. Actually tell them which if you became a member of this manufacturer , you used to be furnished with a second user laptop with a previous employee. Laptops appeared to be troubling you considering that 1 year however you monitored somehow. Nonetheless gets hotter grew to be lifeless your business priced a person regarding it. A person do not think this can be sensible as well as hope that they will take a look at this kind of matter as well as do 100 % the legal on hand by means of refunding a person your own money.
    Seriously it is quite depressing to learn your own position.It can be true that nobody can live without having feeling other folks,nonetheless feeling without knowing it properly can also be not necessarily good.When you are furnished with this sort of outdated laptop & it absolutely was troubling you ,you will have succumbed composing on your boss.If a person had done this process,a person would not have any problem by means of now.

    It's simple to in addition point out a similar thing which you ended up being furnished with some sort of outdated laptop which often isn't operating nicely from your own receipt.See precisely what replies a person get.If your own asking is just not considered really,you'll need to tolerate the price of the particular laptop.Though it's not necessarily sensible,being a staff member,you can not work serenely possessing no real phrase using the management.

    The second choice is suit the difficulty for the purpose you will have evidence not necessarily operating your own laptop nicely ever since the period of passing above the same to be able to you which ones My partner and i do not think a person have.
    The actual actions from your manager is not specialist as well as correct. For starters you would like to make certain whenever you have any thing by Enterprise, you are required to express this current affliction of this object to be able to ideal authorities. I cannot in a position to be aware that if you appeared to be dealing with problem in laptop it is your work to be able to survey it to be able to recognition so they can repair it. BUT as soon as they have lifeless consuming the main price tag regarding rehabilitation is just not right because it had become resale, to ensure the down on paper cost should be taken. Complete it to enhance recognition making sure that actions could be taken.
