A municipality in New York was sued for a negligent hiring and talent acquisition process after one of their employees ran over a teenager with a road grader. Attempting to clear the road of a residential area of snow, the employee, who was a supervisor for the city, failed to notice the group of teenagers walking towards their school. One of the students was run over and dragged down the street, causing significant lacerations, bruising, and internal bleeding. When writing a report, the Street Maintenance department had noted that the crash was preventable; additionally, the employee had a history of privacy violations and vehicle crashes, leading the lawsuit to question why he had continued to be hired and promoted by the city. Consequently, someone with government human resources experience who was able to discuss appropriate processes for hiring, training, and promoting for this type of government position was needed.
