Ohio Negligent Hiring and Supervision Attorneys
In Ohio, an employer can be found liable for its negligent hiring, training, retention, and/or supervision of its employees. A negligent hiring, training, retention, and/or supervision claim is a direct action against an employer, based upon an employee’s conduct that the law regards as wrongful and which would not have occurred but for the employer’s failure to properly hire, supervise or retain the employee.
If you suffered injuries and believe a company was to blame, reach out to our Ohio injury lawyers at Karp Steiger for more information today.
Claims of Negligent Hiring and Retention
Some examples of negligent hiring, training, retention, and/or supervision include:
- An employer’s negligence in hiring an employee that had previously sexually assaulted someone and then does it again.
- A school system hiring a driver with a poor driving record.
- A company failing to monitor its employees during work hours.
- A transportation company failing to act when a driver is caught drinking on the job
In 2021, negligent hiring claims became easier to prove in Ohio. The Ohio Supreme Court concluded that an employer can be sued for damages for an employee’s misconduct under negligent hiring, retention, or supervision theories without having to prove the individual committed a crime in connection with the underlying wrongful act.
