Excerpt from "Can an Employer Intentionally Cause an Injury to a Bystander Employee?"
Supervisor Jay Major was proud of the relationship he had with his crew at Votrix Pipe Company. Everyone was cooperative and seemed to get along with one another. Whenever anyone needed help, co-workers would automatically volunteer. In fact, Major expected and encouraged his workforce to assist one another. As the work of manufacturing plastic corrugated drainage pipe began smoothly one day, things suddenly changed as employee Tom Joyner noticed something wrong with the machine he was using. "Hey, Jay," Tom called out to the supervisor. "I'm having a problem with the screen changer." The screen changer was a machine that removed impurities from the plastic.
