  1. Notice of Liability and Penalties for Misuse of State Vehicles
    1. In the case of accidents involving employees of the institution operating state vehicles, claims may be made against the institution only through the Tennessee Claims Commission. Claims against the State filed the Claims Commission shall operate as waiver of any cause of action, based on the same act or omission, which the claimant has against any State officer or employee. The waiver shall be void if the Commission determines that the act or omission was not within the scope of the officer's or employee's office or employment. State employees are absolutely immune from liability for wrongs which occur within the scope of the officer's or employee's office or employment. In the event an employee misuses a State vehicle, he or she will be subject to one or more of the following penalties: written reprimand or warning, suspension without pay, dismissal, or payment for damages to the vehicle.
