No, they certainly cannot do that. It would be theft for them to take staff property in satisfaction of what the company owes them. If they do this, you should report it to the police.

The docos that we signed were deceiving it asked for the name of purchasers then at the end it askes for guarentors agreement that the creditors may seek from a credit agency personal info then you sign below which we did


 


Even if you signed documents like that, it still doesn't give them a right to take property of your staff to settle debts. They would need to apply to a court to be able to do this, and even then thy wouldn't get access to property of your staff members. Also, you can withdraw your consent to seek personal information by notice in writing to them.

Hi there, if the employee signed it on behalf of the business it will be taken to have been signed by the business and there is no recourse against the employee.

Unfortunately we can't take cases on through this website, but I can recommend someone to you if that would help?
