Legal Recourse For Victims of Workplace Sexual Assault
Attorney contributor Brian Kent of AbuseGuardian.com is a former sex crimes prosecutor who now represents sexual assault victims in civil lawsuits. Brian has offered to share some of his knowledge regarding the legal rights of those who have been sexually assaulted by coworkers:
All workers deserve to feel safe while on the job. There is no excuse for sexual harassment or sexual assault in the workplace, but unfortunately, these are major problems plaguing workplaces in a variety of industries. When an employee is sexually assaulted in the workplace, it’s important to ask how the assault may have been prevented and if the company did everything they could to keep their employees safe.
Some cases of workplace sexual assault only happen due to negligence. For example, a business could be considered negligent if the perpetrator had previously been reported for sexual harassment or sexual misconduct but was still permitted to keep working for the business. In cases of negligence, the victim may have grounds for a lawsuit.
