Here is a real story from a local restaurant owner:
"A year ago, one of my 17 year old waitresses was kissed by one of the cooks. The girl and her parents sued me for failing to provide a safe working environment. Even though I had no idea that anything had taken place, I was held responsible. When it was all said and done, I had spent nearly $100,000 between legal fees and the settlement. The whole incident nearly cost me my business."
Unfortunately, this event is not unique. No matter how safe your working environment is or how strict of hiring procedures you may have, you cannot control how one employee interacts with another.
