In yesterday’s webinar, Edward Faulks QC spoke generally about vicarious liability and its history. Jack Harding and Susanna Bennett then considered:
- The latest case law on the ’first limb’ of the test for vicarious liability (‘akin to employment’) including SKX v Manchester City Council and Breakingbury v Croad.
- Analysis of the Supreme Court decision in Various Claimants v Morrisons and whether it has led to a discernible shift in judicial attitude towards the ‘second limb’ (‘close connection’) of the test.
