          In many industries, vicarious liability is an ever present concern for employers.

          It holds an employer responsible for the actions or omissions of an employee or someone acting in the course of duties for the employer. This can include accidents, bullying and harassment, violent or discriminatory acts or even breach of copyright. Indeed, it has been a fast and continuously developing area of law.

          In particular reference to employer's and public liability insurance, what steps can employers do to mitigate risks and how has the law developed to date? DWF Law LLP is an international legal business with specialism in defending personal injury claims and, in partnership with Ropewalk Chambers, invite you to join us to discuss these points and increase your understanding of the key legislation and case law in respect of vicarious liability.

          There will also be opportunities to meet with experts from DWF Law LLP and Ropewalk Chambers to ask any questions.
