It is usually the case that some will want their employer to submit a CCLA rather than need
to.  The ICLA is the way an individual states that they have the right to commit the software
they contribute.  If during the course of their employment they are called upon to enhance
or fix bugs in an Apache project the ICLA is sufficient for them to do that provided they
have permission to do so from their employer.  The CCLA protects the individual in that case
by explicitly stating the listed individuals have that right. The CCLA is also one way a company
can donate software directly to the ASF.  There are quite a few companies that don't want
to submit a CCLA but will allow their employees to contribute. In those cases it is up to
the individual to make sure they are protected should management changes occur, etc.
