Legal Recourse For Sexual Misconduct on College Campuses

Attorney Michael Haggard is a college sexual assault and sexual harassment lawyer who represents victims in civil lawsuits. He recently shared some information regarding the legal rights of victims of sexual misconduct on college campuses.

"Many college campuses have policies in place to protect the students and staff from inappropriate sexual conduct. This can include sexual assault and sexual harassment. Whether the abuse came from a school employee towards a student or another employee, the abuser should be held accountable. Additionally, the college's security procedures should be investigated as well. If a college has not implemented a good safety plan to reduce the risks of sexual misconduct, they can be deemed negligent. Security measures such as background checks, security cameras, and a proper reporting system can help to minimize the occurrence of sexual misconduct." 

"If a college employee has been accused of sexual misconduct and the school was aware they had prior incidents, the college can be held accountable. Victims of sexual misconduct by a college employee, whether sexual assault or sexual harassment, should seek the advice of an experienced college sexual assault attorney. These attorneys can provide confidential guidance to victims as they explore their legal options."
