Dana Kravetz’s article, “That's One Costly Cup of Yogurt: Expanded Liability for Employers in California,” was published in the June issue of the California Hotel & Lodging Association’s Industry Newsletter

From the article...

"Commonly known as the “going and coming” rule, an employer is generally not liable for an employee’s actions during the course of an employee’s daily commute to and from work.  If the employer requires an employee to use his or her own vehicle to complete work assignments, however, the employer can face vicarious liability for personal injury and property damage should the employee get into a traffic accident. The California Court of Appeal’s recent ruling in Moradi v. Marsh USA, Inc., — Cal.Rptr.3d —, 2013 WL 5203485 (Sept. 17, 2013), could potentially expand the scope of employer liability in this area."
