Vicarious Employment Liability in Franchising: From Nevada Franchisor Roundtable June 2009

When can a franchisor can potentially be found to be an "employer" of a franchisee, and how can that relationship lead to legal liability for a franchisee's actions?  That question was asked, and answered, during the discussion at the June 2009 meeting of the Nevada Franchisor Roundtable.  The discussion was led by Berna Rhodes-Ford, an employment attorney based in the Las Vegas office of Holland & Hart LLP.

In addition to talking about the circumstances that may lead to potential vicarious employment liability, Berna helped identify some of the tools available to franchisors to help avoid the appearance of an employer-employee relationship.
