Definitions of MASTER AND SERVANT
Sort: Oldest first
The master typically has total authority over the servant in directing the manner, place, and time of services in this type of relationship. Contrast to employer-employee relationships: an employee has some discretion in performing required duties. Contrast to principal-agent relationships: an agent often has broad leeway in conducting the principal's business. Also refer to master servant rule.
