Fraternity Hazing and Sexual Abuse

As specialists in prosecuting harassment cases, Phillips & Associates focuses on addressing the unacceptable practice of fraternity hazing and sexual abuse. Fraternity hazing is a concealed violation of human rights, often encompassing a broad spectrum of actions, ranging from subtle manipulations to abhorrent physical assaults.

  • Sleep deprivation
  • Excessive alcohol consumption
  • Physical endurance tests
  • Humiliation rituals
  • Isolation
  • Violent acts
  • Exposure to extreme conditions
  • Academic sabotage
  • Forced violation of laws or rules
  • Sexual abuse

Beyond the stereotypical scenario of male harassment, fraternity hazing can be perpetuated by any gender, towards any gender. It can also occur irrespective of the victim’s actual or perceived sexual orientation.

  • Coerced sexual acts: This involves forcing a pledge or member to engage in sexual activity against their will as part of an initiation process.
  • Sexually explicit behavior: New members may be made to perform sexually explicit acts, like streaking or public masturbation, often aimed at humiliation.
  • Sexual objectification: Initiates could be forced to undress, be groped, or be subjected to inappropriate comments about their body, promoting a culture of objectification.
  • Distribution of explicit content: Images or videos of a sexual nature involving new members may be taken without consent and distributed within or outside the fraternity.
  • Sexual assault: This represents the most severe form of sexual abuse, where initiates may be subjected to non-consensual sexual penetration or sexual touching.

Potential victims of such cases need not endure these heinous acts alone. In the quest to ensure justice, Phillips & Associates commits to representing victims of fraternity hazing and associated sexual abuse, to empower them and bring the perpetrators to account.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Is there a time limit to file a sexual harassment claim?

    Yes. Victims generally need to file a charge with the EEOC within 180 days from the day the harassment took place. Under some circumstances, the 180-day deadline may be extended by state law, but in most cases, failure to file within the deadline may bar your right to relief.

  • I witnessed harassment at work. What should I do?

    You should report the incident to your employer, and you may also explain to the offender that what she or he did is not funny or welcome.

  • Is all workplace harassment considered illegal?

    No. The laws do not prohibit simple teasing, offhand comments, or isolated incidents that are not very serious.

  • Does harassment have to occur at work for it to be illegal?

    No. The law protects you whether the harassment occurred on or off the workplace.
