Travel with own transportation
If the CAO of the client prescribes this, the employee will receive a commuting (home-work) 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 Charlie works 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 and work and the employee declines to make use of this option, he or she forfeits the right to claim a possible reimbursement as stated in the CAO.
All employees living in a Charlie works housing accommodation will be housed, where possible, within 10 kilometers of the work location.
Employees are free to move to private housing, however the additional daily travel expenses will usually not be reimbursed. At the employee's request, Charlie works will make an effort to arrange work closer to the housing. However, this can not be guaranteed.
Use of company car
If, in the opinion of Charlie works, the employee must have a company car to properly perform the work, the employer will make this available. For the rules relating to the use of the company car, we refer you 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 upon receiving the car.
Charlie works uses a trip registration system that works via GPS. If the employee drives a car privately unauthorized, 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). The driver will then be charged with the so-called 'bijtelling' (additional tax liability).
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 Charlie works 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.
