Case of the Month
11/2018
Personal and Confidential Information
The Court of Appeal in the recent WM Morrison Supermarkets case has held that an employer is vicariously liable for the misuse of its employees' personal and confidential information by another employee's criminal conduct . Even where this is intended to harm the employer. Many employers are unaware that they are invariably liable ( vicariously ) for the actions of their employees eg allegations of harassment even where the employer has disciplined the offender. Express policies prohibiting eg specific potentially offensive conduct do however assist in defending actions against employers in such circumstances.
