Negligent-Supervision-scaledEmployers are typically in charge of overseeing employees and other staff members. Employers have a legal duty to the public to supervise their workers sufficiently. When an employer fails to exercise appropriate supervision, that business can be held liable through a negligent supervision claim. An accident victim may be entitled to pursue a lawsuit against the company of an employee who caused their injuries. Consequently, multiple parties are often held legally responsible in accidents involving careless workers.

Negligent supervision is a concept derived from the doctrine of vicarious liability, which holds an employer responsible for an employee’s actions during the scope of their employment. However, negligent supervision claims are often used to sue businesses when an employee’s negligence is outside the scope of their employment. These claims are filed directly against employers for their irresponsible actions or inactions. Therefore, when justice cannot be obtained under the legal theory of vicarious liability, our litigators may be able to pursue a negligent supervision claim to hold the employer accountable.
