Legal Recourse For Survivors of Massage Therapist Sexual Assault
Brian Kent is an experienced massage therapist sexual assault lawyer who helps survivors of sexual violence secure justice. We’ve asked him to share some input into the legal options available to those who have been sexually abused by massage therapists:
Massage therapy requires trust between the therapist and the customer. Customers are in a vulnerable position, and it’s important that the employees of massage businesses are honorable people who treat their customers with respect. Unfortunately, sometimes massage therapy attracts sexual predators who abuse their positions of trust and sexually assault their customers.
When a massage therapy customer is sexually abused by a massage therapist, it’s crucial to arrest and prosecute the offender before they can harm others. Additionally, it’s also important to determine if the offender’s employer was negligent in a way that failed to prevent sexual assault by their employees. For example, a massage business may be considered negligent for failing to report complaints of sexual misconduct to the authorities or failing to fire an employee accused of sexual misconduct.
