If you were a victim of sexual assault during a furniture delivery, you could file a lawsuit. Who could you sue for the sexual assault that you suffered? Without a doubt, you could sue your attacker. However, it is also important to note that you could also file a lawsuit against the attacker’s employer – whether this is the furniture store or a third-party delivery service. This is because companies have a duty to ensure that their employees do not pose a threat to their customers. They must properly screen all prospective employees before hiring them (background checks), ensure that employees are properly trained, ensure that employees are properly supervise, and ensure that any reports or allegations made against the employee are addressed, for instance. When companies fail to do this, then they can be liable for any harm resulting from the actions of their employees.
