Is It Sexual Harassment or Sexual Assault?
Sexual assault can include sexual harassment, but sexual harassment doesn’t necessarily include sexual assault. Under California law, any kind of sexual interaction that happens without the explicit consent of the receiving party can be considered sexual assault. The key distinguishing factor here is physical contact – if any occurred, a sexual assault may have also occurred.
