Hi All!
I would like to seek your advice regarding the case of our Aesthetic Nurse. Due to her negligence, one client suffered 2nd-3rd degree burn in her underarm while undergoing IPL treatment (laser hair removal). The client made a lot of demands and the company were helpful to give in to those demands since we are also taking responsibility of what happened and of course to protect the name of our institution.
This employee (RN by the way) does have a cash bond in our company in which we deduct from her every payday. Is it legal or ok to charge her with all the expenses company has made to the injured client?
Please advise.
Thank you

NO, it is illegal to deduct anything from the employee. You may terminate her for Gross negligence but cannot deduct from her anything unless she consents to the deduction.
Please advise.
Thank you

Do we need to conduct conference or hearing even if the employee already admitted in her explanation letter tht it was indeed her negligence? We will not dismiss the employee but we will serve the decision of 3 days suspension and charge her with the expenses (with her consent).

Yes that would be better to ensure that full compliance with due process is observed.
