    An employee (who admits to being stressed about an unrelated incident) trips into a pothole, drops and breaks their glasses. They are now trying to claim back £400 for a new pair of glasses.

    This is primarily a US board, and US and UK law are not the same. We have no experts on UK law here, sorry.

    Surely, the employer has a solicitor who can advise him on the liability issue.

    You're not even asking a question here - just telling a story.
