The trigger isn't generating the error, the insert is. As such you'll never get to the EXCEPTION section so you won't get any records in EMPAUDIT. You could write a procedure to perform the insert and use your EXCEPTION block in that instead; the procedure would generate the ORA-00001 error and then execute the EXCEPTION section, inserting your audit record into the EMPAUDIT table.
