Workplace Sexual Assault or Harassment Allegations
Workplace sexual assault or harassment allegations can be troubling, particularly if the accused is innocent.
If faced with workplace harassment allegations, responding and consulting with a sexual harassment lawyer is important to protect your job.
Any statement given to the employer can potentially be used against the accused in criminal court, affecting their credibility or admission.
In some cases, the complainant may later go to the police, resulting in criminal charges. Inconsistencies in statements can be detrimental to the accused's defence.
When charged criminally and simultaneously facing a workplace or college complaint, exercising the right to silence is advised as preserving the job is unlikely and statements may harm the criminal case.
