Advocacy Against Post-Employment Harassment

There is no one who loves pain itself, who seeks after it and wants to have it, simply because it is pain.

Who We Are!

We are a non-profit dedicated to fighting endemic post-employment harassment at an investment bank. For various reasons, some former employees have faced severe backlash designed to use electronic and physical harassment in a fashion that is difficult to prove in the current legal environment. This organization was founded to bring together the victims of these abuses and advocate for their rights through a coordinated approach.

Who Are The Victims?

The Bank has targeted victims of workplace harassment and constructive dismissals to prevent them taking action. As workplace harassment laws are focused on tackling incidents that happen in the office within a narrow statute of limitations, post-employment harassment can be effective in psychologically destabilizing victims to dissuade them from taking prompt legal action.

In addition to being difficult to prove, it can be hard to find help to fight post-employment harassment since few people are well versed in this area. This organization was formed to overcome these obstacles by bringing together victims from all instances the Bank has used post-employment harassment in labor relations.
