Hi,

could you please tell me whether the word "designated" is correctly used in the following text:

As far as the employer’s liability for damage to the things brought to the premises of the plant by the employees and stored at places designated therefor is concerned, the premises of the plant shall be deemed to include the fenced part of the plant only. The employees are obliged to store things at places designated therefor and to ensure their locking if the employer creates conditions for this.

Thanks a lot!

With regard to the employer’s liability for damage to any possessions of an employee that are brought to the premises of the plant and so stored at designated places, the premises of the plant shall be deemed to include the fenced part of the plant only. Employees are obliged to store any possessions at places so designated for that purpose and to ensure their security by lock if employer provision for this exists.

And is it "employer provision" or "employer´s provision" at the end of the sentence?

Yes - sorry. You see on the screen what is in your mind - even when it isn't!

but "employer´s provision" is also correct, isn´t it?

Both are correct. In my original wording, 'employer' is used as if it was an adjective. This style is not uncommon in legal-like writing. Grammatically, employer's provision is correct if one is being absolutely strict about this, but coming to this style at the end of the paragraph is like a sudden change in style of writing. go with 'employer provision'.
