What is the difference between harassment and assault?

We, as a practice of solicitors, can assist you in obtaining compensation if you have been the victim of sexual assault.


For a matter to be regarded as assault there has to be some physical contact between you and the perpetrator of the assault. This can be a simple as unwanted and inappropriate touching. If you are the recipient of unwanted attention all bullying from a colleague that does not involve touching but may consist of obscene texts messages, comments etc then you may have a claim for sexual harassment. We are not able to assist you with claims of sexual harassment as such falls under the umbrella of employment law and you will need to speak with a solicitor who specialises in this area of law.


We would suggest that you google 'sexual harassment claim's' and the name of your town/city.
