How Sharing a List of Sexual Harassers Could Get You in Legal Trouble

As the media has recently highlighted, many victims of sexual harassment have come forth with compiled lists of perpetrators. Unfortunately, these victims may face legal trouble for this act, including accusations of defamation, tortious interference, breach of a non-disclosure agreement, and unauthorized access of information via an anti-doxxing law violation. It is essential for victims to understand the legal nuances and consequences that they may face before coming forward.

A person who claims they were sexually harassed by a certain individual can be accused of defamation. Defamation refers to making any false statements intending to injure the reputation of a person or an entity. Another legal concern may take the form of tortious interference, meaning the accuser allegedly used the sexual harassment allegations in a malicious manner to interfere with or harm another’s business relationship.

Although that though a victim of sexual harassment wants to come forward and disclose the name of the perpetrator in order to inform the public, they are still at risk of legal consequences. Therefore, it may be important to consult with a sexual harassment attorney before making or contributing to a list of sexual harassers. To learn more about the legal nuances pertaining to disclosing a list of sexual harassers, please read this article by Virginia Sexual Harassment Attorney Tom Spiggle from Spiggle Law.
