Unit 7 Case Analysis 2 When an employee commits a tort against another while working, they are covered under the Doctrine of Respondeat Superior. This doctrine says “an employer is held responsible for the acts of its employees or agents committed within the scope of employment” ("Respondeat superior," 2010). This would mean that while performing the duties required by the employer, the employee would be covered by this doctrine for torts the employer may face. Otherwise the employee will find themselves facing the liability on their own. There are many factors to consider when looking at the Respondeat Superior. These factors are the scope of the employment for the employee. The act in question must first have been authorized by the employer. The time, place, and purpose of the act are also important as it will show that the act fits in to the scope of the employee’s job. The act was common to the employee’s duties on behalf of the employers.
