Negligent Hiring

NEGLIGENT HIRING LAWSUITS ARE RISING AND BUSINESSES, MUNICIPALITIES AND INSTITUTIONS CAN NO LONGER RELY SOLELY ON THEIR INSTINCTS WHEN MAKING HIRING DECISIONS. WITH PRE-EMPLOYMENT SCREENINGS, YOU CAN AVOID THESE TYPES OF LAWSUITS WHICH DIVERT VALUABLE HUMAN AND FINANCIAL RESOURCES AWAY FROM THE EVERYDAY OPERATIONS OF YOUR ORGANIZATION, INSTITUTION OR BUSINESS.

Negligent Hiring Negligent Hiring refers to the hiring of the person that the employer knows, or should have known, possesses some attribute of character or prior conduct that would create an undue risk or harm to others in carrying out his/her employment responsibilities. Negligent hiring is the failure to use reasonable care in the employment selection process. With an increased emphasis on safety and security, employers must conduct employment screenings to ensure that they are selecting an individual who not only has the necessary skills and work-related experience, but is also someone that does not pose a risk to the company's financial stability and reputation.

With a comprehensive employee background check we can help you to prevent potential workplace violence, employee theft, and negligent hiring liability as well as identify whether an individual has falsified their employment application. According to the National Crime Victimization Survey, which was conducted over a 7-year period, an average of 1.7 million violent victimizations per year were committed against people in the workplace. In addition to the nonfatal violence, a startling 900 work-related homicides occurred annually. Workplace violence accounted for 18% of all violent crime during this 7 year study. With the prevalence of employee theft, which costs businesses billions of dollars annually, and workplace violence, employment screening is no longer an option.
