'Practical jokes' in the workplace - where is the boundary between employer's liability and vicarious liability?

All levels - 1 hour

(Please note that the number of CPD hours may be subject to change)

This webinar, presented by exceptional speaker and barrister Theo Huckle QC will briefly review the state of the law on vicarious liability and seek to cover what the Court of Appeal decision in Chell v Tarmac Cement and Lime Ltd [2022] means - and where the law may develop from here as to:

  • The interrelationship between employer's liability and vicarious liability
  • ‘Horseplay’ and ‘practical jokes’ in the modern workplace - time for a review?
  • When does an employer have a duty to act when on notice as to 'tensions in the workplace'?
