Businesses have a responsibility to provide a safe workplace by hiring the most qualified person.
The courts are beginning to see litigation against businesses for improper hiring practices when an employee causes harm at work.
Negligent hiring may be found if a hiring decision made by an employer results in an employee who injures or harms a customer, co-worker, or any individual who comes into contact with the employee. For example, a victim of harassment in the workplace may have a cause of action for negligent hiring on the part of her employer if they can show that the employer was aware of the harasser’s termination from a previous position for the same behaviour.
