Is my boss at all liable for not taking any action against the employee and allowing his behavior?
Expert:  Roger replied 8 years ago.
No one is responsible for another's criminal actions. However, the company - not the boss personally - could be sued for negligence in failing to do all it can to diffuse the situation.

The company could be held responsible, but not him personally.
