Abstract

Employers are now being sued for the crimes of their employees. These lawsuits are usually based on a claim of employer negligence for having hired a dangerous employee. However, similar lawsuits are also being brought over employer failings in post‐hiring decisions of supervision, retention, training and assignment. This paper examines an employer’s potential liability from post‐hiring decisions and offers measures for reducing that liability threat.
