No student should ever have to endure the effects of sexual harassment on college campuses. However, when this harassment occurs, it is crucial to hold perpetrators accountable.
Sexual Harassment in Student Organizations
Participating in student organizations is a vital part of the college experience for many students. However, within large organizations, particularly fraternities or sororities, incidences of sexual harassment or abuse can occur. These incidences can occur during events held by the organization, as part of hazing rituals, or at off-campus gatherings. Because of the size of these organizations, victims may feel that coming forward about these incidences will not afford them any protection. At Perry Charnoff, our trial attornies will work to hold the offenders and the organization accountable for these incidences.
Sexual Harassment by Faculty
Professors and college faculty hold positions of authority and are seen as people who can be trusted. Many students have a mentoring relationship with a professor or member of the college faculty. Sometimes, professors or college faculty can use their influence to take advantage of students and then manipulate them into staying quiet about the incidences of sexual abuse or harassment. Particularly, students may tolerate sexual harassment from professors if they believe that speaking out on these incidences could impact their grade. These incidences may occur in the classroom, during office hours, or outside of the typical classroom setting.
While the institution may attempt to resolve these incidences internally, this type of resolution often ends in favor of the offender, or the offending institution and can leave the victim isolated or demonized. At Perry Charnoff, our attorneys will fight to ensure the offender is held accountable and you are protected. Contact one of our compassionate trial attorneys for more information.
