1 hour CLE applied for / CDLA Members Only Please

Claims against employers are common in all types of litigation. Here, we will focus on claims against employers for the negligence of employees. This CLE will begin with the basics by answering the following questions: (1) when is the employer liable for the negligence of an employee; (2) when can a Plaintiff bring a claim against an employer for the negligence of an employee; (3) who are the required parties; (4) how must such a claim be pled; and (5) how does such a claim impact the scope of discovery.

Then we will turn to special considerations raised by the Colorado Supreme Court in Ferrer v. Okbamicael, 390 P.3d 836, 840 (Colo. 2017), including potential defenses and motions to consider. We will also discuss recent legislative activity attempting to overturn the Ferrer decision.
