Brain injury lawsuit alleges negligent hiring

The legal principle of respondeat superior assigns liability to employers in Paterson for the negligent actions of their employees. Yet in many cases, an investigation into an employee's background might call into question the decision to hire them in the first place. In many industries, it is expected that employers will perform a thorough background check on job candidates to see if anything from their past may call their judgment into question (at the very least, employers should get an idea as to whether or not a person is qualified during the interview process). If those expectations are not met, and an employee later causes damages, accusations of negligent hiring may be leveled at the employer. 

Sayreville man accused of sexual abuse

Allegations of abuse against children may often prompt anger in community members in Paterson. When that abuse is reported to be sexual, that anger can be even further compounded. The fact that it was allegedly perpetrated against kids may cause many to rush to judgment and assign guilt to those accused before even allowing the facts of a case to come out. Even when those facts are released, people may already be so deeply prejudiced that they may have already formed their opinions. It should be remembered, however, that judgments should be reserved until a clear case is present.
