What to do when an employee breaks his laptop?

By djoubert ·
I am the Tech Coordinator at a small, private elementary school. The faculty received laptops recently for use in and out of the classrooms. One of the teachers dropped his, which has essentially fried the laptop. My IT guy took parts from other laptops and put everything together so it would work. That's not the problem.

My question is: how do we make it so the teachers USE the laptops (aren't afraid of dropping them) but are still held responsible for any damage done? Does anyone have a procedure they use or some protocol they have?

Any help would be appreciated.

Laptop Insurance

by shhite In reply to What to do when an employ ...

My company has made it mandatory to purchase laptop insurance. The premium is paid by each employee and then there is a deductible if damage is done. The deductible is paid for by the employee in most cases but the company has been known to pay for one due to circumstances. Most employees actually like it because it gives them the extra sense of security in case an accident does happen. The company we get laptop insurance through is called Safeware. Here is their website. http://www.safeware.com/
