Dr. Anshul M. Gandhi Arrested For Allegedly Sexually Assaulting a Co-Worker

Last Update: 7/13/2020

Cedars-Sinai Medical Center emergency room physician Dr. Anshul M. Gandhi was arrested this week for allegedly sexually assaulting a co-worker. Gandhi was charged on Wednesday with a felony count of forced oral copulation. He was released Thursday morning after he posted a $100,000 bond.

Cedars-Sinai has released a statement saying that Gandhi no longer works for the hospital. However, it is not clear when he stopped working there.

According to a report from NBC Los Angeles, several Cedars-Sinai employees said that several women had previously come forward regarding alleged sexual misconduct by Gandhi.

A female co-worker has accused Gandhi of sexually assaulting her inside of her apartment. Investigators are currently reaching out to former hospital employees to interview them about this case.

Anyone with information regarding this case has been encouraged to call the LAPD Central station at (213) 996-1842.

Legal Options For Victims of Workplace Sexual Assault

Attorney contributor Bobby Thompson helps sexual assault victims find justice through civil lawsuits. We’ve asked Bobby to add some of his thoughts on the legal rights of workplace sexual assault victims.

“No one should ever have to worry about being sexually harassed or sexually assaulted by a co-worker, but sadly, this is a major problem affecting a number of fields. Fortunately, victims of workplace sexual assault hold powerful legal rights in both criminal and civil courts. Correspondingly, along with reporting the assault to the police for a criminal investigation, there are many situations where these victims have grounds for a civil lawsuit.”

Mr. Thompson added, “For example, a victim of workplace sexual assault may have grounds for a lawsuit against their employer if other employees had previously filed reports of sexual misconduct naming the specific coworker who assaulted them and the employer failed to adequately address the complaints.”
