Employer Intentional Torts

Under Ohio law, employers may be directly responsible for injuries to employees in situations where it is determined that the employer acted with specific intent to injure an employee. Determining liability in such cases is complicated, and may depend on a number of factors including, though not limited to, the presence or removal of equipment safety features, toxic substances in the workplace, temporary versus permanent employees, and potential workers’ compensation immunity. Gallagher Sharp’s attorneys have a wide range of experience representing large corporations as well as small family-run businesses in connection with employer intentional tort claims.
