Small business owners hypothetical...what would you do?
Here is the situation. You own a small specialty shop with only a few close employees. One day one of your customers, while parking, hits your employees car. It's is discovered by the employee and the customer is still parked with their back bumper ontop of the employees bumper so there is no gray area, it's obvious who it is and what happened.
The customer is contacted and the customer doesn't provide their insurance information and goes so far as to blame the employee for parking too close to the line. The employee was not parked over the parking line but the customer decided being close to it was fault enough for her not to take responsibility for her mistake.
Would you intercede? Would you apologize to your employee but tell them there is nothing that can be done?
