Negligent Hiring is the claim made against an employer made by an individual who is injured or harmed by an employee with a history reflecting similar incidents. Negligent Hiring claims that the employer knew or must have known about their behaviors before hiring.
Basically, if you as an employer are not able to thoroughly verify an employee’s background, you are responsible for their actions. Conducting thorough pre-employment background checks is one strategy used by employers to avoid being liable for negligent hiring claims.
