Workplace Sexual Assault Claims

A victim of sexual assault that occurred at a workplace may be able to file a third party claim against his or her employer. Depending on the circumstances, several different types of claims are possible. For example, the employer may be liable for negligently maintaining the premises or for creating unsafe or dangerous conditions, such as through inadequate lighting or poorly maintaining locks or security systems.

The employer could be liable if they created or permitted a hostile work environment by not controlling the actions of the victim's superiors or co-workers. Hostile work environment harassment generally exists if unwelcome sexual conduct in the workplace unreasonably interferes with an employee's work performance or creates an intimidating, hostile, or offensive employment environment. Several other factual scenarios may create liability on the employer's part, such as "quid pro quo harassment," in which an employee must accede to sexual demands or forfeit job benefits or other advantages, or otherwise be subject to less favorable working conditions.
