Negligent Hiring Practices

Employers owe a huge amount of responsibility to their employees. Employers need to provide workers with the proper training, safety equipment, and post all appropriate safety and warning signs to help prevent workplace accidents. But an employer’s responsibility to its workers doesn’t end there – one of the most common causes of workplace injuries is negligent hiring practices.

An Employer’s Responsibility When Hiring

When an employer decides to hire a new employee, they must take reasonable care. This includes gathering detailed and accurate information on prospective hires through employment applications and comprehensive background checks. When employers fail to do this, they could end up hiring a worker that causes catastrophic accidents.
