Reasons for Crew Member Assault
Apart from the crew members themselves, cruise ship companies are typically held liable for crew member sexual assault, as they are the ones to employ cruise ship staff members. Some factors that can lead to crew member sexual assault include:
- Negligent hiring
- Insufficient training
- Negligent security
The failure of a cruise ship company to properly screen and train their crew members can result in unfortunate consequences for vacationers.
