Vicarious Liability? – Legally Mine

Doctor Reading Papers at Desk

Most people are aware that if a minor is involved in a crime or some other sort of reckless behavior, the parents can be held responsible.   In certain cases they are just as culpable as if they were the ones who performed the crimes themselves.

But did you know that the same principle applies to employers and employees too?  As an employer you can be held legally responsible for the actions of your employee even if you had no control over their actions (and especially if your pockets are deep enough).  Sound a little scary?  This is called vicarious liability, and especially in the medical world can be a problem.
