Orange County Workplace Sexual Abuse Attorney

Representing Sexual Abuse Victims in the Workplace

Sexual abuse can often start in the workplace. In many sexual abuse cases, the abuse comes from a person who is in a position of authority, influence, or power over the victim. Often the abuser is someone that the victim trusts, such as a mentor. In these cases, the victim may be afraid to speak out against their abuser out of fear, humiliation, or shame. They may even repress the memories of the abuse out of emotional or psychological distress or trauma.

What is Considered Sexual Abuse?

Sexual abuse generally refers to forced physical sexual behavior perpetrated on the victim and may include sexual assault, rape, oral or anal sex, masturbation of either the offender or the victim, or sexual penetration by objects. This type of abuse generally creates psychological trauma in the victims. Victims of sexual abuse may suffer from nightmares, depression, panic attacks, anxiety, insomnia, weight loss, eating disorders, alcoholism, drug abuse, and other forms of emotional distress or health problems.

Examples of Verbal Sexual Abuse in the Workplace

A one-time joke or comment may not necessarily be considered sexual harassment. However, if the severity of the abuse was enough to create a hostile work environment, affect your job, or cause harm, then you may have a case. If there has been consistent verbal sexual abuse, this likely will be considered sexual abuse.
