Recruitment Consulting Challenge
Provide an expert opinion on accusations of negligent hiring, negligent retention, negligent supervision and sexual harassment.
Hired to serve as HR & Talent Acquisition Experts to help defend a midsize employer from accusations of negligent hiring, negligent retention, negligent supervision and sexual harassment. Plaintiffs included 30 different parties. Plaintiff’s demands valued the lawsuit in the millions.
Although unusual, we used a team approach to help our client, the employer, receive a summary judgment from the Court.
This was a case of a rogue employee, who after many years of successful job performance and promotion, committed a felony and violated the privacy of many women. Although the employee clearly committed an illegal act, the employer followed acceptable hiring, supervisory, and employment practices.
- Upon receiving The WorkPlace Group’s expert report, our client’s legal team decided not to settle the case
- We were able to demonstrate that the employer acted appropriately and according to Human Resource industry standards
- Summary judgment was granted in favor of the employer, saving hundreds of thousands of dollars in litigation and settlement costs
