The employer and the company may be prosecuted in case of non-reporting road offense committed by an employee.
Employers must « denounce » employees who commit road traffic offenses with a company vehicle, under penalty of fine.
The court of cassation considers that if the employer can be prosecuted for failing to meet the obligation to appoint, so can the company.
The major difference is that the fine for a company is 5 times that of the fine for an individual.
Be vigilant it can cost up to 3750€ per fine.
