60. because it absolves them of being legally responsible....
ten years ago my daughter was sexually assaulted by a fellow employee and the company was not held liable because he was a temp they hired for the holidays. They were both security guards for a major movie studio. The studio relied on the temp service to do a background check and they didn't (he had a record of several incidents of sexual harassment). The temp agency nor her attacker had any real assets. she won a money judgment in civil court that had no real value.
