Loaned Servant Defense

Some Labor Law claims arise in situation where an employer allows their employee to work under the control or direction of another person or entity.  The employee is injured while working under the direction of the other person or entity.

Worker’s Compensation Law can function to prohibit the employee from suing either her employer or the person/entity under whose direction the employee was operating.  This scenario can be raised as a defense to defeat certain Labor Law claims.  It is known as the “Loaned Servant” or “Borrowed Employee” doctrine.
