LinkedIn Has A Stalker Problem

For victims of sexual harassment, assault, and domestic violence, looking for work means exposing themselves to their assailants.  

Anna R., 24, quit her job after her boss sexually assaulted her at work. It was her first job out of college, and she didn’t feel safe. She had to leave. “It quite frankly really freaked me out,” she says. “I was forced to walk away from the job and never looked back. I felt screwed, for lack of better word.” 

That’s when her boss started sending daily emails and voicemails that were a mix of flirty and threatening. She deleted the voicemail, ignored the emails, and tried to move on. She blocked him on Facebook and added security settings on Twitter so he wouldn’t know what she was up to. 

But here’s what she couldn’t stop: Every single day she received an alert that he had looked at her profile on LinkedIn.
