Sexual Assault in the Workplace

Workplace Sexual Assault Attorneys

woman holding up here hand in a stop gesture | Workplace Sexual Assault AttorneysIn 2016, the US Equal Employment Opportunity Commission released a comprehensive study of workplace harassment and assault. They found that up to 85% of women in the workplace experienced some form of sexual harassment but up to 75% of these incidents go unreported. Even more shocking is that 75% of victims who come forward experience some sort of retaliation by their employer or by other coworkers. If you or someone you love has experienced sexual assault in the workplace, contact the dedicated workplace sexual assault attorneys at the Gold Law Firm for a free, confidential consultation so you can learn what your legal options are.

When Sexual Harassment becomes Sexual Assault

Businesses that turn a blind eye to sexual harassment create an environment that is ripe for sexual assault. Harassers become emboldened when they aren’t prosecuted or reprimanded, and victims remain silent because no one takes steps to protect them. What starts as sexual jokes or inappropriate emails can quickly escalate into sexual assault. If your boss, another co-worker, or employee has sexually assaulted you, then you have the right to seek justice and hold them accountable.

What Constitutes Sexual Assault at Work?

If someone at work uses their position of power, or coerces you into having sex or performing sexual acts out of fear of losing your job, that is considered sexual assault. If someone physically forces you to perform a sexual act, undresses in front of you, or touches your breasts or genitals without consent, that is also sexual assault. Some incidents of sexual assault may need to be prosecuted both civilly and criminally, so it is important to report the incident as soon as possible.

It is important to know that sexual assault in the workplace does not have to occur in the office. It can also occur after hours or on a business trip, and it can even be in your own home. Many sexual assault victims mistakenly believe that if they invited their boss or co-worker into their home, then they were somehow complicit. This is far from the truth. Consent is key in any sexual assault case and consent must be given freely and given the entire time.

What to Do if You’ve Been a Victim of Sexual Assault at Work?

If you’ve been sexually assaulted at work, the first thing you should do is seek medical attention. Have your injuries or your trauma documented by a medical professional and then seek legal help.

I have worked with Greg Gold and his attorneys on a number of personal injury cases for our clients. His law firm is very creative and extremely talented. I would recommend him to anyone dealing with a car accident, insurance dispute, or catastrophic injury claim.

Jessica Yates -

The Gold Law Firm and Greg took on my unique case when no one else would. They were amazing through the whole process. Making sure we clearly understood everything. Always taking extra time to answer all our questions. In the end we got justice! I just learned that now they have a special victims unit, and it warms my heart to know that someone is there for those unique victims.

Janet Christensen -

Client

This is a top-notch law firm who puts their client first. Colleen Parsley walked me through all the steps of my lawsuit. She is the best lawyer you can partner with. Mike Rosenberg was the insurance specialist and has outstanding expertise. Between the two of them we were able to settle my claim with two different insurance companies who had no intention of settling with me directly. I received a recommendation to contact the Gold Law Firm after a year of providing evidence and expecting coverage of my home damage after a water heater failure. I finally realized my only option was to hire a lawyer. I am very grateful that I found the best!
