Employers are often liable to third parties for their employees’ wrongful acts. This liability is known as respondeat superior or vicarious liability. An employer can be liable for an employee’s conduct even when the employee’s wrongful conduct violates a work rule or the employee acts on his or her own in violation of supervisory direction. Rogue employees can be dangerous. An employer can be liable even when an employee injures his or her family member. That was recently addressed in Rahman v. State, 170 Wn.2d 810 (2011).
