Negligent Entrustment

Negligent entrustment can stem from employees driving company-owned vehicles, their personal vehicles or other vehicles on company business. Employers have a responsibility to know if an employee has something in his/her driving background that creates a risk to others. Negligent entrustment implies a company knew, or should have known, that it put an unsafe driver behind the wheel of a vehicle and allowed that employee to drive on behalf of the company. This presentation will cover the topics and considerations that companies should be thinking about as they pertain to Negligent Entrustment. The specific objectives that will be discussed will help you be able to recognize the types of drivers that expose employers to negligence, learn how your company’s internal practices can increase exposures to negligent entrustment and steps that you can take to reduce your exposure to negligent entrustment.
