Who may be responsible for sexual harassment? Collapse

Any of these entities may be legally responsible for sexual harassment:

  • The abuser themselves
  • An employer
  • Schools at all levels – universities, high schools, middle schools, etc.
  • Churches and religious organizations
  • Summer camps
  • Daycares
  • Volunteer organizations – community theater
  • Youth and adult sports leagues
  • Gyms

Any organization that allows sexual harassment to occur, enables it, or fails to take action when they know it’s occurring may be legally responsible for harassment. How you respond depends on the organization involved, the extent of their legal liability and your damages.

Can I receive compensation for sexual harassment? Expand

Yes, you may receive compensation for sexual harassment. There are factors that determine what compensation you can receive:

  • The conduct of the defendant in the case
  • Whether you are retaliated against in employment or forced to resign because of a hostile work environment
  • Lost income, benefits and other forms of employment compensation
  • The severity of the actions taken against you; your mental health suffering and emotional anguish
  • Strengths and weaknesses of the legal claim
  • Resources of the defendant/defendants to pay a claim

There are a number of factors involved in what compensation a victim may stand to receive. There are often significant damages for sexual assault victims. Physical, financial, and mental damages can last a lifetime. Our Colorado Springs attorneys ensure that we account for the wide range of suffering that a sexual harassment victim endures. We work to fully claim all categories of compensation on behalf of the victim.

Is what happened to me sexual harassment? Expand

There are many different kinds of sexual harassment. Assault and battery is just one example. Sexual harassment can occur once. It can also take place over a period of time with several encounters. Here are examples of things that can happen that may be sexual assault:

  • Making derogatory comments, slurs and jokes
  • Unwanted advancements
  • Threatening someone with firing or a demotion
  • Showing someone sexual images
  • Making a job intolerable; excessive demands or assigning demeaning tasks
  • Spreading rumors, saying false things
  • Physically blocking movement

Any behavior of a sexual nature that is offensive may amount to sexual harassment. Unfortunately, there’s no single test that applies in all cases. The determination depends on the sum total of the facts and whether the circumstances would be offensive to a reasonable person.

How do I make a claim for sexual harassment against an employer or organization? Expand

There are two primary theories for proving a claim of sexual harassment against an employer or organization. The first is that the employer is liable for what their employees or agents do. The second is that the organization knew or should have known what was going on. Then, they either allowed it to happen, or they failed to follow up on information and signs of what was happening. Legal theories of vicarious liability and respondeat superior apply in order to hold an employer or organization liable when they fail to respond appropriately to sexual harassment.

What qualifies as constructive discharge in Colorado? Expand

In Colorado, constructive discharge occurs when working conditions become so unbearable that the victim is forced to resign. It occurs when a victim is subjected to working conditions that are so offensive or unreasonable that an objective person would not be able to continue working there. Constructive discharge may qualify a victim for a sexual harassment claim and financial compensation in Colorado.

Do I have to prove sexual harassment beyond a reasonable doubt in Colorado? Expand

No, in a civil case, you do not have to prove sexual harassment beyond a reasonable doubt in Colorado. The standard in a civil case, brought by a victim, is a preponderance of the evidence. That means just that you have to prove it’s more likely than not that you’re a victim of sexual harassment. If a defendant faces criminal charges, the standard is beyond a reasonable doubt. However, for a civil case for financial compensation, you must only prove the events occurred by a preponderance of the evidence.

Our Colorado Springs sexual harassment attorneys can help you gather the needed proofs to win your case. It’s critical to document not only what happened but also what the organization knew about it and how they failed to react. When we represent a victim, we demand records, conduct depositions and enforce discovery when witnesses and organizations are reluctant to cooperate. Our lawyers are skilled to work effectively to build a claim on your behalf.

What do I do if I’m the victim of sexual harassment in school? Expand

You don’t have to tolerate sexual harassment in school. If you’re the victim of sexual harassment at school, the school has a legal obligation to respond appropriately. Unfortunately, schools too often fail in their obligations or don’t take complaints seriously. You may be able to submit a complaint to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission in addition to a civil claim that may be available to you. Our attorneys for sexual assault in Colorado Springs can guide you through the reporting and investigation process as well as represent you in your civil claim.
