Los Angeles Attorneys Advocate for Employees Harassed by Inappropriate Photos, Videos and Displays of Affection at Work

Handling virtual harassment in the digital age

With so much inappropriate and offensive content on websites, videos and social media, the digital age has made the problem of harassment in the workplace an even greater concern.
