Negligent Hiring Practices
Asked Jun 2, 2013, 06:07 AM
I worked for a company from 2/2010 to 4/2011 recruiting truck drivers. They did not perform background checks on employees or on the truck drivers we hired. It has recently came to light that my ex-supervisor at this job had an attempted murder charge on her record from 15 years ago & just last week murdered her current husband. Isn't it considered negligent hiring practice if you hire a person who has a history of violent or criminal acts and did not do a background check to find this information out? I would have liked to have known I was working under a convicted felon during this time and feel like the company was obligated to know this information by performing a background check.
