Hazing is a term used to describe inappropriate activities required for initiation into an organization. It is often an illegal action that can cause pain and suffering for those forced to participate. Oftentimes, incidents of hazing go unreported due to an individual desiring to be a member of a group. However, if unreported, hazing can continue in a group, harming new individuals year after year.

Hazing can easily get out of control and can even break any laws. If you have been adversely affected by hazing, it is important to consult an attorney about filing a personal injury lawsuit and your rights to compensation.

Common Hazing Rituals

Hazing will often include performing illegal stunts or inappropriate actions. Organizations that are known to use hazing as a method of initiation include:

  • Fraternities and sororities
  • The military
  • Athletic teams
  • Gangs
  • Certain workplaces

The results of hazing can be devastating and are unacceptable no matter the environment. Some hazing rituals include the following:

  • Physical abuse
  • Bullying
  • Sexual harassment
  • Verbal harassment

Unfortunately, failure to participate in hazing can result in being denied admission into an organization and as such, it can be difficult for a person to report these unlawful actions. If you have been harmed due to hazing, you can put a stop to the pain and suffering that may be inflicted on others who will undergo this initiation process in the future.
