Workplace Sexual Assault
Our leading attorney — Arthur Navarette — has more than two decades of experience in high-complexity cases involving sexual harassment and workplace sexual assault in San Jose and throughout the Bay Area. Attorneys with particular skills are essential in this complex area of the law because civil and criminal law often intersect, making such cases particularly challenging.
Sexual Assault At Work Can Take A Wide Variety Of Forms
If someone has violated your personal space, your sense of security and your peace of mind by assaulting you in a sexual way, you deserve justice AND compensation. If this violation of your rights occurred in your workplace or was perpetrated by a co-worker — during work hours or not — you may even be entitled to punitive damages.
While rape does occur in the workplace and supervisors and co-workers may be guilty of rape, this is not the only type of sexual assault that occurs. Workplace sexual assault may also include unwanted touching, groping or invasions of your personal space. This may include unwelcome kissing or hugging. Furthermore, if a co-worker with seniority, an owner of a company, or a supervisor of any kind forces an employee into having sexual contact with him or her, that supervisor may be guilty of sexual assault. They may be personally liable for what you have suffered. Furthermore, the company that you work for may also owe you compensation for your suffering.
