This means that the liability does not take regard of the personal responsibility of the employer for the faults and torts committed by the employee during their period of employment. For instance, if a delivery driver’s negligence results in a car accident, if an individual is injured they may be able to sue the delivery driver’s employer, which is mostly a processing company, for the injuries sustained.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
