Are You Eligible for Workers’ Compensation?
When an employee drives a company car, truck, or other types of motor vehicles, generally he or she is acting within the scope of his or her employment. The relationship between employers and those employees who drive company vehicles falls under the respondeat superior doctrine. This means that employers are legally liable for the actions of their employees while “acting within the scope of their employment.”
Scope of employment includes the following:
- Driving to and from off-site jobs
- Making deliveries
- Driving to and from work (with the employer’s permission)
- Using the company vehicle while conducting other job-related duties
