Sexual Harassment & Social Media
If You Have Been Sexually Harassed On Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Or Any Other Social Network, We Will Help You
People who sexually harass others at work have new ways to do so with the power of online social networks. Social media has offered a new venue for people to send sexually offensive jokes, make unwanted sexual overtures, and send graphic and disturbing images. All of these behaviors can be classified as sexual harassment.
Sexual Harassment Often Occurs After Hours
Work-related sexual harassment may occur outside the workplace and outside of work hours. If someone at your work obtains your social media contact information and sends inappropriate and unwanted sexually explicit or other unsolicited materials to you, he or she may be violating your rights and your employer may be liable. This is especially true if a supervisor or someone else in a privileged position accesses and uses your information inappropriately.
