Do you have any employer liability If your employee texts while driving?
Did you know you could be held liable for sending a text that results in a car crash? Typically, victims of car accidents blame the other driver who may have been driving while texting. One Court recently held, however, that even a remote texter could be held liable if the recipient of the text causes an accident.
In my most recent article titled “Beware a New Way Employers and Employees Could Be Liable for Texting on the Job” for Maximize Social Business I analyze that decision and how it may apply to employers and employees who text and/or receive texts on the job.
My article has unexpectedly generated quite a bit of interest. It was chosen as a Top Blog post by CommPRO.biz, and I have received requests for interviews by a CBS radio affiliate. There certainly will be more developments in this area of the law as Courts try to catch up with technology.
