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.
