  • Vicarious liability

    Liability for the acts of another, or the attribution of one person’s liability to another, such as the liability of an employer for acts and omissions (amounting to negligence) of his/her employees while carrying out their employment. It is generally no defence to a claim of vicarious liability against a negligent employer that the employee was not complying with directions if another person was injured as a result. Vicarious liability is also a feature of the agency relationship.
