Negligence and Tort Laws, and Labor and Discrimination Laws

 

What is the test that is being looked at to determine negligence?

When the actions of an individual injure a third party, the individual’s employer may be held liable if the individual was an employee of the employer and was acting within the scope of his or her employment in taking the actions causing the injury. An independent contractor will tend to be more responsible for his or her own negligence or wrongful conduct, although the courts may look to the nature and scope of the work performed to see if the independent contractor was an agent of the company for whom the work was performed. If so, the court can impose liability on that company as well, despite an independent contractor relationship. This video reviews why the amount and extent of control over the worker is the key factor in determining negligence.
