R.C. 2745.01 defines an intentional tort as occurring where an employee’s injury occurred because the employer acted “with the intent to injure” or “with the belief that the injury was substantially certain to occur.” The statute defines “substantially certain” to require “deliberate intent.” An intentional tort can also occur if the employer deliberately removed a safety guard or misrepresented a hazardous or toxic substance.
