10. Vicarious Liability and Non-Delegable Duties  

All books in this flagship series contain carefully selected substantial extracts from key cases, legislation, and academic debate, providing able students with a stand-alone resource. This chapter explores vicarious liability, a form of secondary liability which operates most often in the employment context, and non-delegable duties. It begins by outlining the nature and structure of vicarious liability before turning to two requirements of sufficient relationship and sufficient connection with the tort. It then explains possible justifications for vicarious liability, the relationship criterion, and the notion of ‘close connection’ as it has been developed through key recent cases.
