Duty of Care

Duty of Care

All those who are involved in the provision of learning owe a duty of care to the Apprentice. The duty bears most directly on the employer who, at the time, has the Apprentice in their charge. However, others whose actions and omissions have a bearing on the Apprentice’s well-being must share the duty of care.

 

Employers may be sued if they are negligent in their duty of care towards an Apprentice, even if they are not breaking any specific laws.
