Negligent Retention

Retain an incompetent employee whom the employer knows was incompetent or unfit, thereby creating an unreasonable risk of harm to others.

negligent hiring
Negligent Hiring

Based on the employer’s direct negligence rather than on the vicarious liability for the torts of its workers.

slide3
The general rule is that there is no duty to protect another from the conduct of a third person. An exception exists where there is a special relationship between the defendant and the third person.
slide4

Duty Cases

Special relationship of trust with a vulnerable group

  • Golden Spread Council of Boy Scouts v. Akins, 926 S.W.2d 287 (Tex. 1996) – Scoutmaster with troop members
  • Porter v. Nemir, 900 S.W.2d 376 (Tex.App-Austin 1995, no writ) – drug counselor with spouse of recovering addict
  • Deerings W. Nursing Ctr. V. Scott, 787 S.W.2d 494 (Tex.App.-El Paso 1990, writ denied) – Nursing assistant with the elderly and infirm
slide5

Duty Cases

  • Foreseeable creation of risk of harm to others by reason of employment duties
      • Read v. Scott Fetzer Co., 990 S.W.2d 732 (Tex. 1998)
      • The Court held that a “company that markets and sells products through independent contractor distributors and exercises control by requiring in-home demonstration and sales, owes a duty to act reasonably in the exercise of the control.”
      • Estate of Arrington v. Fields, 578 S.W.2d 173 (Tex.Civ.App.-Tyler 1979, writ ref’d n.r.e.)
slide6

No Duty Cases

No duty because contact with employee was not by reason of employment

  • Guidry v. National Frieight, 944 S.W.2d 807, (Tex.App.-Austin 1997, no writ).
  • Houser v. Smith, 968 S.W.2d. 542, (Tex.App.-Austin 1998, no writ).
slide7

As a truck driver, Jaramillo should never have come into contact with Guidry in the exercise of his duties as an employee of National. Consequently, the sexual assault was not foreseeable by National when Jaramillo was hired. Furthermore, Guidry is not a member of a vulnerable or specially protected group with whom Jaramillo could be expected to come into contact during his work; any duty to her must flow from a duty owed to the general public.

slide8

Imposing a duty to perform a nationwide criminal background check on all of National’s current and prospective drivers would create a significant administrative burden. Guidry’s theory of liability would impose upon National a continuing duty to check criminal records in all states, military records, and all other sources of such data to ensure no criminal activity escaped its notice.
