Types of impositions involving sexual harassment
In order for sexual harassment to be considered a sexual imposition, one of the following circumstances normally needs to apply:
- The harasser knows the touching is offensive to the accuser.
- The harasser knows the accuser is under the influence of drugs or alcohol and cannot consent due to being impaired.
- The accuser is asleep or passed out during the incident.
- The accuser is under the age of consent, which is 18 years old for most adults in Utah.
- The harasser is a medical health professional and the accuser is a client or patient.
Sexual harassment laws can be confusing. Pursuing a legal case can be challenging. That’s why it’s important to talk to a lawyer as soon as possible about your potential sexual harassment case.
