Travel with own transportation
If the collective labor agreement (CAO) of the client prescribes this, the employee will receive a commuting (homework) allowance. Travel expenses are only paid out if the employee travels with their own mode of transportation and doesn’t make use of the transportation that has been made available by the employer.
Drivers license but no car of your own
If the employee doesn’t own a car but has a valid drivers license and is prepared to pick up other
colleagues on the way to work, the employee should notify the office. Employees can use a
company car provided by the employer for which the employee will receive a compensation of
€ 3,00 per worked day with a maximum of € 15,00 per week.
Travel with transportation of employer
If Charlie works provides transportation between home-work and the employee declines to make
use of this option, he or she forfeits the right to claim a possible cost reimbursement as stated in
the collective labor agreement.
All employees living in Charlie works housing accommodation will be housed, where possible, within 10
kilometers of the worklocation. Employees are free to move to private housing, however the
additional daily travel expenses will usually not be reimbursed. At the employee's request, the
employer will make an effort to organize work closer to housing, but this can not be guaranteed.
Use of company car
If in the opinion of the employer, the employee must have a company car for the proper
performance of the work, the employer will make this available to him/her. For the rules relating to
the use of the company car, reference is made to the drivers' regulations which employees receive
if this applies.
Charlie works employees who have received a company car for home-work traffic must sign a driver's regulation and claim form upon receipt and return of the car. We would like to point out that the car must be properly checked for damage on receipt of the car.
The employer uses a trip registration system that works via GPS. If the employee drives an
unauthorized car privately, these kilometers will be charged to the employee, as prescribed in the
tax administration's (belastingdienst) sanctions policy.
It is possible to use the company car for private purposes (up to 500 km per month, refueling is at
your own expense and it is not allowed to travel outside of the Netherlands).If this option is chosen, the driver is then charged with the so-called “bijtelling”. In order to be able
to use a car privately, the employee must complete, sign and return the statement for private use
of the car at the office.
If in case of damage caused to the car, the employee is found to be blamed for having driven the
car under the influence of alcohol, the full amount of damage will be charged to the employee.
