Agency and Employee Accountability in Cases of Negligence: The Legal Issues of Employee Credibility and Training
Number of pages:
An 8 page assertion that our educational arena has been subject to many challenges and disappointments. At the center of many of these is the issues of employee credibility and training. That the educational system has a problem is not an issue of contention. What is questionable in the current day legal environment, however, is whether or not employees and school districts can be held legally liable for the educational inadequacies which result from inadequate teacher qualifications and training. This paper utilizes the Supreme Court cases of Monroe Vs Pape (1961), Monell Vs Dept of Social Services (1978), City Of Oklahoma Vs Tuttle (1984), Daniels Vs Willaims (1986), Davidson Vs Cannon (1986), and City of Springfield Vs Kibbe (1987) to add insight to that question. All illustrate the delicate balance between employee liability and negligence on the part of the agency when employee credibility is challenged. Bibliography lists 5 sources.
