What would you do if you were Eun-Young’s manager?

Eun-Young was a catering supervisor who usually worked out of her home office. She communicated with her manager’s office by telephone, fax, and modem, all of which were installed in her home by Advance Technology, a company that her manager selected to supply equipment and services.

When Eun-Young’s modem stopped working one day, she contacted her manager’s office which, in turn, called Advance Technology, requesting that a service technician be dispatched. The technician arrived, but in the course of his visit, assaulted Eun-Young. The technician was apprehended by the police and convicted of felony assault (his third such conviction in three years).

Eun-Young sued Advance Technology, claiming negligent hiring. In addition, her
attorney advised her manager that she was injured on the job and would be making
a workers’ compensation claim.
