Numerous individuals who work in retail stores are actually employed by a company other than the retailer itself. These include vendor employees stocking product, sampling employees who offer customers tasty treats, inventory company employees, cleaning crews, security guards, and delivery personnel. Whether you could be liable as a retailer for the conduct of one of these individuals, or for their employment-related claims, can sometimes be hard to determine. You need to understand and educate your supervisors on how to interact with these individuals without creating liability for your business.
