Southern California Sexual Abuse Attorneys
Sexual abuse can often start in the workplace. In many sexual abuse cases, the abuse comes from a person who is in a position of authority, influence, or power over the victim. Often the abuser is someone that the victim trusts, such as a mentor. In these cases, the victim may be afraid to speak out against their abuser out of fear, humiliation, or shame. They may even repress the memories of the abuse out of emotional or psychological distress or trauma.
