Sexual assault can be experienced on the job in any workplace situation. At a Walmart corporate office, satellite office or any branch office, there can be instances of in-house sexual assault. People who are victims of sexual assault often do not realize that they are being sexually targeted by a sexual predator in the workplace.
There are many different types of unacceptable behaviors that can turn into sexual harassment or even sexual assault. These actions can include actions from a colleague, boss, supervisor, manager, vendor, client or anyone in the workplace, who takes advantage of the working relationship by perpetrating:
- Unwanted sexually themed flirting
- Texting sexually explicit photos and messages
- Saying offensive gender comments
- Sending sexually explicit emails or online text messages in a chat
- Posting sexual photos at work
- Hugging someone without consent
- Using catcalls
- Repeatedly asking someone on a date
- Using suggestive whistling
- Leering at the coworker
- Staring longingly at the person
- Making jokes about a woman’s body or pregnancy status
- Scratching someone’s back without consent
- Touching someone without consent
- Holding a handshake too long or forcefully
- Using demeaning language
- Talking negatively about a person’s sexual orientation
- Giving unwanted shoulder massages
- Using crude swears and offensive language

Offering a Promotion Based on Performing Sexual Favors Can Be a Precursor to a Sexual Assault
If you have worked in an office and a manager, supervisor or boss offered a promotion for a sexual favor, this can be a precursor to a sexual assault. Any time you are offered or denied something based on the performance of a sexual favor, it can be a form of sexual harassment, including:
- Getting positive work assignments
- Receiving negative work assignments
- Being promoted for sexual favors
- Getting an unwarranted negative performance review
- Receiving a positive unwarranted performance review
- Being threatened with termination for not performing sexual favors
- Sexual favors influencing a hiring decision
In the event that a supervisor, manager, boss or owner speaks suggestively to you as a man or a woman, you may be working in a hostile work environment. If this occurs at Walmart in the in-house atmosphere, you may have a sexual assault on your hands. When this is the case, you can call us at our law office immediately, and talk to our legal team at the DTLA Law Group at 855.339.8879.

How Is Sexual Assault Different from Rape?
- Forcibly rape you
- Fondles you without your consent
- Touches you sexually without your consent
- Forces you to perform sexual acts on someone else
- Penetrates your body (mouth, orifices) and sexual organs with anything
Sexual assault is a term that is generally meant to cover all types of sexual conduct, but it has a formal definition that is a bit more specific. A sexual assault is when someone forces a person to perform a sexual act or penetrates the person’s body with a sexual organ, or in a sexual place on that individual’s body. Rape is a form of sexual assault, but every sexual assault is not considered a rape, per se.
Recovery from a Sexual Assault Can Be Difficult for a Sexual Assault Victim
It is difficult to recover from a sexual assault, especially from one in the workplace from a boss, supervisor, manager or owner of a business.
