VICARIOUS LIABILITY REVERSED FOR MORRISONS

VICARIOUS LIABILITY REVERSED FOR MORRISONS

Morrisons ‘not liable’ for actions of rogue employee over data leak. The Supreme Court’s ruling has widespread implications for data protection controllers across the country.

 

The Supreme Court’s ruling puts employers in a better stance where they may otherwise be held vicariously liable for the acts of rogue employees to deliberately harm the employer.
