Personal Injury Lawyer
One area of the law that can be either sexual harassment or battery is inappropriate or harmful touching. If anyone whether they are a co-worker, boss, teacher, etc touches you inappropriately, you could have a claim against them. If it is a co-worker or higher-up at work, it is usually covered under sexual harassment law, but you could also be protected from any inappropriate touching by battery laws. This law protects you from any contact that causes no injury but is offensive or insulting to you. This includes things like someone spitting in your face or offensively touching you against your will.

Important Information About Unwanted Touching
Federal and Georgia State laws protect you from unwanted touching of any kind. Whether it's groping of a sexual nature or an unwanted pat on the head, it can be considered battery. In a battery claim such as this, contact must be intended but you do not have to prove that your attacker meant to cause you harm. In other words, even if the intent was just a joke, there is no excuse for inappropriate touching. Any adult should know better than to touch someone else inappropriately without their consent. Some other facts that you should know about inappropriate touching and sexual harassment:
- The victim and the harasser may be a woman or a man.
- The victim does not have to be of the opposite sex of the harasser.
- The harasser can be a supervisor, a co-worker, a client or someone with no relation.
- You do not need to have strong evidence in order to win your case
