Employment torts Employment torts are violations or wrongful acts which cause a legal liability and relate to a company’s employment practices. Common examples include sexual harassment, infliction of emotional distress, wrongful termination and invasion of privacy. Any of these actions, within the workplace, may be an example of an employment tort, and it may cause legal repercussions for the company. Consequences typically include legal action of varying levels, if an employee initiates it, or if its severity calls for authorities to intervene. Businesses can often obtain coverage against the financial impact of employment tort litigation by securing an employment practices liability insurance policy.
