Negligent Retention is a type of employment-related claim in which the plaintiff alleges that the employer did not fire an employee that management knew or should have known about being violent, sexually harassing, or dishonest. For example, negligent retention lawsuits are often brought after an employee commits a mass shooting in a factory or office. Affected workers then sue the employer, alleging that the company was negligent in not firing the worker sooner. The basis for the applicants’ argument is that in the previous cases the employee provided clear evidence of a propensity for such violence (for example, he threatened or brought weapons into the company’s premises). Coverage for such claims is available under Employment Practices Liability Insurance (EPLI) policies.
