Sexual Assault at Works Party/Function

If you have been a victim of sexual assault at a works party or other work-related function then you may be entitled to claim compensation from your employers for the assault and the resulting stress and psychological damage.

To see how we can help you claim the compensation that you deserve get in touch with us today.

For a claim of this nature to be successful it will need to be shown that there is an abuse of position, privilege or power and there must be some degree of tie-in between the actions of the attacker and their employment. 

 

An example of an abuse of power is if a junior member of staff is plied with drink while at a work-sanctioned function and is then sexually assaulted by a senior member of staff then it could be said that they have abused their position and neglected in their duty to manage and ensure the well-being of junior staff members.  

In such a scenario a claim could be brought against the employers for the actions of the manager.

What can you claim?

We know that money cannot turn back time or undo the hurt and pain and feeling of betrayal that can follow a sexual assault by a collegue but we can help you get recognition of such in the form of compensation.

 

Our knowledge and expertise can help you recover compensation not only for the physical and mental injuries that you may sustain but also for:
 

  • any lost income as a result of time away from work for recovery and/or treatment 

  • the cost of any treatment you may need to help you deal with and recover from your ordeal

  • all and any other financial losses that may arise as a result of the incident
