In the first-ever full lawyer team video of the Johnston Business Law Group, Jen Goldstein, Laura Swinchock, and Matthew Johnston are discussing some of the lessons to be drawn from the Alex Baldwin’s Rust movie set accidental death and injury case.
While the tragic incident happened in the movie industry, there are several legal insights that small businesses can learn from, particularly around:
- Negligent hiring and retention: Employers have an obligation to use reasonable care in selecting and retaining its employees.
- Workplace safety concerns: Employers have a general duty to protect against known hazards.
