A few employment-related matters may go to the criminal courts. For example, the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) can prosecute employers who breach health and safety law. And if you do something illegal at work, such as stealing, or assaulting a colleague, you may be liable to criminal prosecution. Stalking work colleagues (in person and online) can also lead to criminal prosecution. So can harassment, including racial- or disability-related harassment.
