Roy Watson sold vacuum cleaners door-to-door as an independent

Roy Watson sold vacuum cleaners door-to-door as an independent contractor for T & F. Before hiring Watson, the president of T & F checked with two of his former employers but could not remember if he called Watson’s two references. Watson had an extensive criminal record. T & F granted Watson sales territory that included Neptune City, New Jersey. This city required that all “peddlers” such as Watson be licensed. Applicants for this license were fingerprinted. T & F never insisted that Watson apply for such a license. Watson attacked Miriam Bennett after selling a vacuum cleaner to her at her home in Neptune City. Is T & F liable to Bennett?
