Revival of Salomon in Tortious Liability

Image
One begins to wonder if the Court in the case of Salomon v Salomon [1897] A.C.22ever envisaged that a principle derived from the case law in 1897 was continue to be litigated with such furore in 2014. The principle in Salomon sought to keep companies as separate legal entities which personalities that are distinct from their owners and controllers. The advantage here being that companies would not be liable for the debts of their shareholders and management and, in the reverse, shareholders and management would not be liable for the debts of the company.
The advantages of the separate entity principle is worthy of an article in itself. The long and the short of it being that by limiting the liability of shareholders company law is able to encourage entrepreneurship amongst those otherwise wary of the dangers associated with a failed venture; thus those without deep pockets but with deep ideas and skills have been able to trade and ensure their risk is limited.
However, a number of cases…

The actions we take; the boundaries we cross; the duties we owe…- status of directors

Image
The epitome of a company director in the eyes of the layperson is too often his perceived inflated wallet. No doubt avid newspaper readers will recall the works of cartoonists depicting directors as hoarders of vast sums of money with enormous wallets. However, to coin a often-quoted phrase, “with great power comes great responsibility”. Company directors are under a catalogue of duties, as detailed in Part 10 of the Companies Act 2006, and these are often conflicting and vague. Equally, provisions in the Insolvency Act 1986 and the dangers of lifting the corporate veil for ills conducted by shareholder-directors can both add to the dangers of the job.
It would be thought, then, that the best way of avoiding such dangers is to be an “off-the-records director”. Legally referred to as “shadow directors”, a phrase which refers to “a person in accordance with whose directions or instructions the directors of the company are accustomed to act” (Section 251 CA 2006), the law has ensured such…

The Range of Reasonable Responses or a Stab in the Dark?

Image
Dismissal is always a sensitive subject; not only due to the inevitable implications for an employee, but the complex and somewhat vague criteria that the employer must adhere to before terminating a contract.
Employment tribunals are to consider a dismissal as unfair if it fails to “fall within the range of reasonable responses”. In addition to being highly subjective in its very nature, the law throws an additional curve ball by expressly forbidding the judge from considering whether they personally would have dismissed the employee in the same circumstances; alternatively suggesting the tribunal ‘see through the eyes of the employer’ and adding a second subjective and rather unusual benchmark for judgment.

Issues relating to such an abstract test arose in the recent case of Rooney v Dundee City Council. Rooney had breached instructions given to her by her employers regarding cash handling; whilst this was done without intent or malice. She was given a final written warning and decid…
