    If you are using your private vehicle for work, yes.  If not, then no.

  • If you lost time from work; he has the right to know and see why!

  • Legally, of course not. However, should you wish to remain employed there it might be a good idea to show him this documentation in order for him to know, beyond doubt, what the real reason for your absence was.

  • Your boss PROBABLY wanted to see something to prove

    you weren't lying about why you were absent from work.

    You can refuse of course, but he'll record the absence as an "unexcused" absence. That's all.

    It's the same as employers wanting to see a doctor note verifying you were at the doctor's office when absent. 

    TOO MANY unexcused absences, and they have a good reason to terminate you.

  • IF you took time off work for it YES.. he has the right to see it. You probably got drunk and just didn't feel like going to work... RIGHT....

  • If you have missed time from work because of car trouble and you have told your boss that the problem is fixed, it is reasonable to be asked for evidence that the problem was fixed.

    He has the legal right to ask for that evidence. There is no legal obligation for you to show it.

    Be aware that if you are an at-will employee, you can be terminated for no reason. So you should think twice about giving your boss a reason. The law does not protect you.

  • No. However, if he's willing to excuse an absence if you show proof that you got your car worked on, it would be dumb not to show him the documentation.
