Coming to terms with abuse can be a very difficult process. While no amount of money can take away the harm the abuse may have caused, compensation may be available to help you access the care and support services you need.

According to the Australian Human Rights Commission, sexual harassment is any unwanted or unwelcome sexual behaviour which makes a person feel offended, humiliated or intimidated.
While most sexual harassment cases occur in the workplace, sexual harassment can also happen in public and private settings including school, university, sports teams, online or over the phone.
Sexual harassment may include physical or verbal acts such as inappropriate advances, intrusive questions, inappropriate comments, staring, touching, sexually explicit messages, requests for sex or unwanted date requests, physical assault, indecent exposure and stalking.
