Abstract:The quote in this article's title was allegedly said to a female truck driver by her male lead driver during a training he was conducting with her. Under the United States Supreme Court's June 2013 decision of 'Vance v. Ball State University' the woman driver's employer could not be held vicariously liable for the trainer's actions, as he would not qualify as her 'supervisor'. This article argues why this case was incorrectly decided and then proposes an alternative, based in part on recent law developments in South Africa. Notes, ref., sum. [ASC Leiden abstract]
