It is commonplace for vehicular accidents to occur on an employee's way to and from the workplace. This reality gave rise to the creation of the going-and-coming rule, which provides that an employee is not acting within the scope of employment while traveling to and from the workplace.

However, like many legal rules, the going-and-coming rule has numerous exceptions. For example, an employer may be held vicariously liable under the incidental benefit or vehicle-use exceptions to the going-and-coming rule.

This webinar will discuss and provide an overview of the going-and-coming rule, its exceptions, and the legal and factual grounds for establishing liability under the doctrine of respondeat superior.

Program Highlights:

  • The nature and origin of the going-and-coming rule
  • The vehicle-use exceptions to the going-and-coming rule
  • The relevance of workers compensation opinions in civil cases
  • The development of facts during discovery to support the exceptions and overcome summary judgment
  • The trial presentation of the exceptions to a jury

This program assumes some litigation/trial experience.
