Sexual Assault in the Workplace Looks Like

Two of the most common areas where sexual assault takes place is in the workplace and on college campuses. Workplace sexual assault has been a topic of much discussion recently, as high-level figures have been accused of some of the most severe sexual assault crimes imaginable. This has helped to highlight just how rampant the problem is across America, and Danville is no exception. Sexual assault can occur in any occupation and between any individuals at the job.

Sexual assault includes a fairly broad number of activities that might occur at your job. Some of the common forms of sexual assault in the workplace include:

  • Touching of a sexual nature from a boss or colleague without consent
  • Fondling above or under clothes
  • Sexual coercion that may involve threats or promises related to your career (but does not have to contain these)
  • Rape and attempted rape by any individual in your workplace
  • Voyeurism
  • Sending unwanted sexual images (or “sexting”) from a colleague or boss
  • Exhibitionism from a colleague or boss
  • Forcing an individual to pose in a sexual manner
  • Sexual harassment, including lewd comments

Sexual assault at work can be particularly malicious because it may affect not just your health and emotional well-being, it may affect your ability to work successfully. It, therefore, can lead to financial difficulties or an inability to pursue your career.

If you have experienced any of this behavior at your place of work, you should contact Spiros Law, P.C. right away.

What Sexual Assault on Campus Looks Like

Like sexual assault in the workplace, sexual assault on campus is all too common. The mixture of young people, alcohol, and inexperience lead to serious risks of sexual assault. Some of the most common sexual assault situations on campus include:

  • Sexual touching when the individual can’t give consent due to passing out from alcohol or drugs
  • Sexual touching when the individual can’t give consent due to being underage
  • Sexual touching without consent
  • Rape and attempted rape
  • Sexual coercion by fellow students, administrators, professors, or others on campus
  • Threats made by fellow students, administrators, professors, or others of a sexual nature
  • The sending of unwanted sexual texts
  • Exhibitionism
  • Voyeurism

Like sexual assault in the workplace, experiencing sexual assault on campus can lead to profound issues beyond the initial trauma. It may lead to individuals feeling unsafe on campus and quitting schooling they desperately need to secure a successful future. If you have experienced any of these forms of sexual assault on campus, contact Spiros Law, P.C. immediately.
