Legal Rights of Victims Sexually Abused by a School Employee

Attorney contributor Bobby Thompson, an experienced and licensed sexual assault lawyer in California, represents victims of teacher sex abuse and helps them receive compensation. Below, Bobby shared insight on victims sexually abused by a school employee and their legal rights.

Does a school have a legal obligation to protect their students?

“Many sexual predators place themselves in positions of power at schools to get close to students. Administrations must implement safety measures to ensure these predators are not hired and cannot abuse students. Examples of safety measures include misconduct reporting systems, background checks, and security guards.”

Can a school be held legally accountable for teacher-student sexual abuse?

“A school can be found liable in a teacher-student sexual abuse case if the school is found to be negligent. An example of negligence is ignoring misconduct reports or ignoring inappropriate acts found on the camera. In cases where the school is negligent, the victims and their families should know they may have grounds for a civil lawsuit and receive compensation.”
