  • The quasi-employment test and when a non-employer may be held to be vicariously liable
  • The principles underpinning the introduction of vicarious liability
  • The two elements to the sufficiently close connection test
    • The nature of the work undertaken
    • The need for a link to the wrongdoing complained of
  • The remaining pitfalls in vicarious liability
