Q. Are employers responsible for fixing an employee’s car if it is involved in an accident while traveling to conduct company business on company time?

A.
Under Pennsylvania’s Workers’ Compensation Act, an employer is not legally required to pay for the costs of repairing an employee’s car—even if it was damaged while the employee was performing services on behalf of the company. However, the employee’s or your automobile insurance policy might cover such costs.
