A realty estate company occasionally hires temporary workers from a temporary employment agency. During an especially busy month, the company needed an accountant to assist in its financial data operations. The realty company contacted the temporary agency and requested an administrative assistant for temporary employment. The realty company and the temp agency then entered into a contract in which the temp agency promised to provide an administrative assistant “who was honest, trustworthy, and efficient.”
A short time later, the temp agency sent over a woman who was placed in the administrative position. The woman worked at the real estate company for one week when she was fired for stealing money. The real estate company then brought suit against the temp agency for misrepresentation. During the trial, the temp agency denied having any knowledge that the woman was dishonest and untrustworthy.
Thereupon, the real estate agency proffered evidence to show that two months before the temp company referred the woman to the real estate company, she had been terminated from a previous temporary employment job for theft.
Upon objection by the temp agency, the proffered evidence is:CorrectIncorrect
