Does Your Job Have to Protect You from Trolls?

The phrase “workplace safety” conjures images of factory floors or corny training videos that warn office workers against spilling hot coffee. But as work has begun to bleed into our personal and online lives, what it means to stay safe on the job has become murkier.

On this week's Game Plan, Francesca and Becca talk to Lauren Duca, a freelance writer for outlets that include Teen Vogue. Duca's articles and TV appearances have made her a target of severe online harassment, so she must work while considering whether bigoted, violent e-mails and social media posts constitute legitimate threats or mere words. We wrestle with how—and whether—employers can look out for workers when the threats to employee safety are virtual.
