Are you a Victim of IIED?

If you are an employee that has a very difficult time at work, and if you constantly feel like you are being harassed or aggravated by your authorities at the company, then you may have the legal right to stand up against your antagonists. IIED stands for the Intentional Infliction of Emotional Distress. This happens when an employer purposefully treats and employee in an offensive or outrageous manner with the intention to cause that person emotional distress.

The behavior is typically extreme. Whether your boss, your co-worker, or a manger is treating you with extremely rude behavior, you have the right o do something about it. Most of the time IIED includes sexual harassment, intimidation, racial slurs, or any other actions that threaten the health or safety of the worker.

To be a victim of IIED, you will need to evidence that you have been treated in a way that is unacceptable in civilized society. For example, if your boss became angry and threw a coffee mug towards you while shouting, this would be an incident that could incite IIED. Normally IIED claims are tort issues,. This means that the case will violate civil or common law. In some cases, you may be able to press criminal charges against an offender, especially in the event of a sexual assault.

IIED does not include normal day-to-day insults, bad manners, or hurt feelings that naturally occur in an office. It is a claim that is specifically for outrageous behaviors that should never take place in any work-related context. You will want to prove that you have been shamed, humiliated, angered, grieved or worried because of how you have been treated. If you can prove that the incident has facilitated a deteriorated health level or higher stress level, then you may be able to seek compensation. If you want more information about IIED lawsuits, a Missouri employment law attorney can assist you today!
