Personal Insurance Verification

A company is requesting a copy of each employees personal auto insurance information for those employees that regularly drive for company business. Most of the employees do not have driving positions and the job descriptions do not state a valid drivers license or insurance policy is required. The company has a policy that requires insurance and recommends liability amounts. The company policy also states this information will be forwarded to the companies carrier for verification. If an employee is driving on company business (between locations), is the company liable? Should the employees provide this information to the company?

The company would be liable for the employee's driving for business between locations unless the employee acted intentionally or outside the scope of employment. Whether the employee should provide the information is up to the employee and the consequences of not providing it.
