Types of Workplace Torts
While you do have legal recourse for wrongful termination, discrimination,
and sexual harassment, these do not typically fall into the category of
intentional workplace torts. There are many other ways, however, that
an employer can unlawfully harm you and your reputation.
The most common types of workplace tort claims include:
- Defamation, including libel and slander
- Unjustified disclosure of confidential information
- Invading your privacy while conducting personal activities
- Assault or battery
- Intentional infliction of emotional distress
- Discharge in violation of public policy
