Negligent hiring occurs when a company hires an employee without taking into consideration certain facts, such as the person’s criminal history and background. Consider the following example, a company hires a new employee with a criminal history of assault. One day, this employee gets into an altercation while on the job and subsequently is arrested. The company may now be liable for both negligent hiring and negligent supervision.
