The California Supreme Court ruled that an employer will be liable for injuries sustained by individuals due to the negligent driving of one of its employees, stating the following: A person injured by someone driving a car in the course of employment may sue not only the driver but also that driver’s employer. The employer can be sued on two legal theories based on tort principles: respondent superior and negligent entrustment.
Respondent superior, a form of vicarious liability, makes an employer liable, irrespective of fault, for negligent driving by its employee in the scope of employment. The theory of negligent entrustment makes an employer liable for its own negligence in choosing an employee to drive a vehicle.
Write a 825 word paper, written in the third-person voice, that addresses the following:

• What course of action do you recommend with respect to the lawsuit and Carcamo’s employment?
• Does Sugar Transport’s HR department have any responsibility for their role in hiring Carcamo? If so, what other employment law issues do you find legally problematic concerning the hiring of Carcamo? Identify them and explain the legal issues and laws that were violated.
Include justification for your responses by citing applicable laws and/or legal cases in your discussion.
Format your paper consistent with APA guidelines, and include headings that appropriately signal topics and that keep your document organized.
Use a minimum of three different sources within the paper in addition to the laws and legal cases required above and provide in-text citations. Any laws and legal cases used in the body of your paper must also be included in the References page.
