Negligence is defined as a failure to behave with the level of care that someone of ordinary prudence would have exercised under the same circumstances. The behavior usually consists of actions, but can also consist of omissions when there is some duty to act (e.g., a duty to help victims of one's previous conduct).
Negligent Hiring, Retention, and Supervision is a legal claim made against an employer where an employer must have known or been on notice that the employee was unfit or incompetent to perform the work for which he or she was hired or retained.
Gross negligence is more than simple carelessness or failure to act. It is willful behavior done with extreme disregard for the health and safety of others. It is conduct likely to cause foreseeable harm.
