Vicarious Liability for Data Breach ­- the recent Supreme Court case

We are pleased to launch our Click and Reflect webinar programme which consists of regular bite size webinars where we'll provide details on recent legal developments.

Duration: 30 minutes

Event type: Seminar

Provided by: RPC

Our first quick-fire session will cover the impact of the recent Supreme Court decision in the WM Morrisons case. Please join our Data Advisory Partner Jon Bartley and Employment Legal Director Kelly Thomson who will run you through the implications for vicarious liability for data breach.

We explore:
i) Why the supermarket chain was held not to be vicariously liable for the actions of a disgruntled employee who posted personal data about his co-workers' earnings on the internet
ii) Given the new ruling, does vicarious liability still apply to data protection?
iii) What is the test for vicarious liability?
iv) When exactly will employers be held liable for the actions of their employees?

We will answer these questions and more in this interactive presentation.
