I'm located in Australia.
When I signed my employment contract last year, there was a clause in it that stated word for word "you are entitled to a company motor vehicle to perform your duties". During my interview, I was told the same thing. When I started working, there was no further mention of the car. I only live a short distance from work, so didn't push the matter for the first few months, however lately I've been required to travel more during work hours to visit clients.
I have asked my employer if they will honour the contract and provide me with a company car to use for these client visits, so that I don't need to use my own personal vehicle (which is not insured as a business vehicle) however now the company is saying that the clause was a "clerical error" and they will not provide me with a car.
I was under the impression that contracts are binding. Is this something that I should seek legal advice for? Should I try to press the matter, and insist that they honour the contract?
