Majrowski v Guy’s and St Thomas’ Trust  UKHL 34
Vicarious liability is a common law principle of strict, no-fault liability. Under this principle a blameless employer is liable for a wrong committed by his employee while the latter is acting in the course of his employment. Foreseeability is not an issue. It is no defence that the employer had taken all reasonable measures to prevent the wrong. The principle is implied in all statutes unless the statute specifically limits it.
