Tidbit #1 – Release of Agent

Everybody knows that if you release the employee you release the employer, right? Try to find a case that says so.

Well, here it is: Craven v. Lawson, 534 S.W.2d 653, 654, 657 (Tenn.1976). This case holds that release of an employee discharges employer’s liability predicated on master-servant or principal-agent relationship.
