Ontario, Canada


The following excerpt is from Kassian Estate v. Canada (Attorney General), 2012 ONSC 4951 (CanLII):

Further, the plaintiffs submit there can be more than one employer for the purpose of imposing vicarious liability (Blackwater v. Plint, supra, at para. 22). This will occur in the context of a joint venture or where a number of entities have come together to form a partnership, as in this case.
