Sexual Abuse in the Workplace
If you have been the victim of sexual abuse or harassment in the workplace, you may be entitled to claim compensation. We have represented numerous victims who have suffered serious sexual assault at work, both at the hands of another member of staff and where an employee has been exposed to a risk of harm in an unsafe situation.
Often employers fail to provide a safe system of work and expose staff to risky situations. Sam has represented a female worker who was awarded £65,000 after she was raped in the workplace. Abuse victims in these cases are often unable to return to their former job and need to re-train and consider a new career. This adds to the stress and trauma that they have already suffered.
At robsonshaw, our specialist solicitors understand these difficulties and will ensure that if your claim succeeds, you are fully compensated for your loss of earnings during your re-training. Sexual abuse victims often need specialist rehabilitation, perhaps in the form of cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) which can be costly. If this applies in your case, we will ensure your compensation includes the cost of treatment on a private basis.
