Employees who use their private vehicles for USQ business are responsible for any damage whatsoever that might occur to the vehicle during this use. USQ employees should be aware that if their private vehicles are used, the vehicles will not be covered under USQ insurance, and that their compulsory third party or comprehensive insurances may not cover the use of their vehicles for business purposes. Employees are advised to check with their insurance company. In many cases insurance companies will issue cover notes for such purposes at no extra cost.
