The Supreme Court has recently handed down two judgments rejecting vicarious liability of employers for the wrong doing of of an employee on the one hand, and an independent contractor on the other. In Episode 106 of the Law Pod UK series Rosalind English discusses these judgments and three other important decisions on vicarious liability with Robert Kellar QC and Isabel McArdle. Previous episodes are available on our website and our blog, UK Human Rights Blog.
The two most recent judgments are:
WM Morrison Supermarkets plc (Appellant) v Various Claimants (Respondents)  UKSC (see my post here)
Other judgments referred to in the discussion are:
Cox v. Ministry of Justice  UKSC 10
The Christian Brothers Case  UKSC 56
Armes v Nottinghamshire CC  UKSC
