The Employer’S Liability For The Damage Caused By Polluting The Environment, In His Capacity Of Coagent


  • George Măgureanu

    (Romanian American University in Bucharest)


The issues regarding environment equally concern all the people of our community, irrespective of the place where they were born or where they perform their jobs. Pollution has no boundaries and does not depend on the political regime in one country or another, on the ethnical origin of the population, the political convictions of the community members, social status or other such criteria taken into consideration, usually, when we analyze a social issue. As a result, people have to abide by the national legal rules of the European Union or international legal rules regarding the environment, which have to be considered at the international level, and when these rules are broken, the body responsible for it should step in to stop the polluting factor and re-establish the broken rightful order. The objective of the European Union in the field of the environment protection, constitutes establishing a liable framework for the damages caused to the environment, based on the principle „the polluter is the responsible one”, including the employer as a co-agent for the act of the agent, in order to prevent and repair the damages caused to the environment.
