The tort of intentional infliction of emotional distress can often crop up in employment actions. Draft a three-page paper on the tort of intentional infliction of emotional distress in employment. Use the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals as the jurisdiction.

In your paper include the following:

  • How the Ninth Circuit defines the tort?
  • What elements must be proven to state a case?
  • What defenses are available to the employer?

In your opinion, why can an intentional infliction of emotional distress claim be added to an employment discrimination claim?
