Stalking and “peeping” claims in Los Angeles
Under California law, stalking occurs when a person willfully, maliciously and repeatedly follows — or willfully and maliciously harasses — another person.

Persistent phone calls and digital stalking
Today, in addition to physical stalking, employees fall prey to digital stalking. This can involve harassing or stalking phone calls that are manipulative, threatening, or lewd. Additionally, cyberstalking — which involves the use of the Internet or other electronic equipment — takes the form of persistent verbal messages that are typed, texted or spoken. It also includes uninvited video and picture messages and Website links.
