Cyber bullying is a hot topic in the world today, and Sidney L. Gold & Associates believe in the victim’s right to legal protection against electronic bullies. When cyber bullying occurs in the workplace, employees have the right to report the abuse and demand that action be taken. Cyber bullying comes in many forms, including derogatory and damaging social media posts; repetitive phone calls, texts, or voicemails; fraudulently representing the victim online and making humiliating or defamatory statements; posting degrading or altered pictures of the victim on the web; or broadcasting images or videos without the victim’s knowledge. Unauthorized access to the victim’s computer or online accounts is also considered cyber bullying as well as intentionally sending viruses to the victim’s computers.
