If an employee is on his way to work and driving a company car and has an accident and is at fault is the employer liable What if the employee is DUI?

The employee, driving a company car, intoxicated and on the way to work!! This has to be the most ... ... ... The employee will be terminated no doubt, and will be charge with causing the accident, and will face a possible lawsuit by the other party.

Is key man insurance taxable to the person covered as is the case on group-term life insurance paid by an employer's company over 50K?

Key person life insurance is coverage on the life of a key employee and payable to the employer upon that employee's death. The purpose is to protect the company from the financial loss associated with the loss of the employee. Since the employee in no way benefits from a key person life insurance policy, there are no tax consequences to the employee.

If an employee is on his way to work and driving a company car and has an accident is the employer liable?

In most cases, the company's insurance carrier will pay for damages, as long as the fault causing the accident was not caused by the employee. The employee here is representing the company in this case - if the employee is charged with negligent driving and was cited for causing the accident, the company insurance carrier will most likely pay, but will seek restitution from the employee. Could get into a real sticky situation.

Can you use Workman's Comp if you work under a 1099 contract?

First. My answers are for U.S. Employees ONLY. If you're a 1099 employee and you work in any setting, You are covered by Workman's Comp. If you work for a company and they pay you 1099, but you work for them, same place every day, etc, they MUST carry Workmans Comp insurance to cover you. Now there are a couple of exceptions. For instance you are, or work for ABC cleaning company. If you submit a bill or a bill is submitted on your behalf to garner payment, then it is the bill generators responsability to cover you with Workmans Comp Insurance. If the employer informes you he does and will not carry this type of insurace, and you agree and sign off and are compensated for said lack of coverage, then your "employer" need not carry Workmans Comp Insurance on you. If you want complete details of who and what coverages need to be carried go to and search Workmans Comp rules & regulations for YOUR STATE or Country, as all states/countries vary a small amount.

How do you find out if an insurance company carries uninsured motorist insurance for company commercial drivers if that company is procrastinating about telling the driver the truth?

Well, you say 'procrastinating,' but your question is not really answerable, and, coming from an employee, impertinent. Regardless of whether the company driver is actually driving for an insurance company--doubtful--or not, they have 'comprehensive' commercial insurance; 'uninsured motorist' insurance is just a way to rephrase 'comprehensive' insurance for those who might not grasp the term.
