All Reports come directly from those who claim they have experienced sexual harassment. BeOnAlert does not tamper or edit any Reports -we  act as a User Generated Content publisher, only.

While we do our best to moderate Reports and will take down any Reports we believe to be false or fraudulent, or which violate our Community Guidelines, Terms of Use or Privacy Policy, we cannot 100% guarantee the accuracy of any Report.

BeOnAlert’s Public Registry is a public-facing, searchable database through which anyone can uncover certain details of incidents of sexual harassment which have been reported through our platform. Available at: https://app.beonalert.org

Category: About BeOnAlert

We use the term ‘Reporter’ to refer to anyone who fills out the survey available by clicking the ‘Submit a Report’ button on our app in order to report to us a case of workplace sexual harassment. We feel the word Reporter gives back the power to the otherwise known victim/survivor.

Category: About BeOnAlert

We use the term ‘Accused’ to refer to the person who our Reporters claim are the perpetrators of the sexual harassment they have experienced. We feel that the term ‘Accused’ gives a fair amount of benefit-of-doubt to the supposed perpetrator.

Category: About BeOnAlert

By Registry we mean a public-facing, searchable database of sexual harassment reports which are submitted to us via our app and have then been pre-approved for publication by us in accordance with our community guidelines. The Registry can be viewed and searched by anyone.

Category: About BeOnAlert

The information available in the Reports on our Registry is gathered from the completed submission forms we receive through our app. Anyone with a valid email address can make a Report.

BeOnAlert reviews each Report to decide if it fits our internal guidelines for publication. If approved, certain details from the Report will be published to our public-facing registry. The Report states:

∙ The company the Accused worked for at the time of the harassment.*
∙ The type/s of sexual harassment experienced.
∙ The general timeframe within which the incident occurred.
∙ The Reporter’s written description of the incident (only if they have given their prior approval).

*We may choose to publish the name and work email address of the harasser if a certain number and level of allegations have been made against them. This will serve to alert users to those who are not represented by any company, such as investors.

Category: About BeOnAlert

BeOnAlert is committed to minimizing the occurrence and controlling the negative impact of sexual harassment in the workplace. We offer a software platform for both Reporters and companies that helps both sides through a guided process to facilitate swift resolutions to sexual harassment claims.

We do this by providing a platform for Reporters to openly share their experiences without the fear of negative repercussions and personal exposure. We enable companies to address the Reporters’ needs, come to a suitable resolution for both sides, and publicly demonstrate their effectiveness in handling sexual harassment claims.  

We hope that through open and honest disclosure we will discourage companies to continue to tolerate sexual harassment on any level and instead encourage them to foster safer, trustworthy, and respectful places to work.

Category: About BeOnAlert

BeOnAlert is a neutral service provider who gives both employees and employers the tools and resources to best handle incidents of sexual harassment in the workplace. BeOnAlert does not act as a fact-finding or investigatory body. The platform is intended as a neutral service to facilitate the swift and fair resolution of sexual harassment cases in a way that is fair to all. 

Category: About BeOnAlert

If the Report meets our community guidelines then we will publish certain details from the Report on our Public Registry. The Report will state:

∙ The company the Accused worked for at the time of the harassment.*
∙ The type/s of sexual harassment the Reporter experienced.
∙ The general timeframe within which the incident occurred.
∙ The Reporter’s written description of the harassment (with the Reporter’s prior approval, only).

*We may choose to publish the name, work email address, or LinkedIn handle of the harasser if a certain number and level of allegations have been made against them. This will serve to alert users to potential harassers who are not represented by any company, such as investors.

These reports will be available to the public on our registry with the intention of protecting and warning others who are potentially at risk. The reports are discoverable by entering the work email address of a harasser or a company name into the search box on our app.

Category: About BeOnAlert

While BeOnAlert do not, and will never, condone any act of sexual harassment, we act as a completely unbiased platform through which both employees and employers can benefit from our services equally.

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) defines sexual harassment as:

“Unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature constitute sexual harassment when this conduct explicitly or implicitly affects an individual’s employment, unreasonably interferes with an individual’s work performance, or creates an intimidating, hostile, or offensive work environment.”

Sexual harassment falls into two general categories: 1) quid-pro-quo: this is where the giving or removal of employment benefits is implicitly or explicitly offered in exchange for sexual favours or conduct. 2) hostile environments: this is where the sexual conduct is so pervasive and severe so as to causes a person’s work environment to be intimidating, hostile, or offensive; or to affect their ability to do their job properly.

In the future, we plan to enable you to communicate with HR, psychological and harassment professionals; your employer; and other Reporters via the internal Reporter Platform.

Upon publication of your report, we will contact the Accused’s employer and inform them that a report has been made on our platform. We will provide this company with the same information that is available on the Public Registry as well and the name of the harasser.

At this stage, your identity will not be revealed to this company; however, you will have the option to allow us to reveal your identity further down the line so as to help you come to a satisfactory resolution with your employer. You have complete control over if and when your identity is revealed.

When you close your account, any comments and communications stored on your Reporter Platform will be deleted permanently and cannot be retrieved.

For too long now, incidents of sexual harassment in the workplace have been swept under the carpet, minimized, dismissed, and even accepted as normal practice. We understand the difficulty Reporters face in coming forward – shame, uncertainty, fear, and a whole range of other emotions and potential scenarios can stop a person wanting to expose a sexual harasser. We hope that by providing an anonymous reporting system we can give Reporters back the power by giving them a voice and a platform that comes with no conditions, expectations, or unwanted repercussions.

By making a Report through BeOnAlert you can make other people in your community aware of a potential threat, you can expose an injustice without your identity being shared, and you can do your part to eradicate sexual harassment in a way that suits you. We will never pressure you to follow through with reporting a case to your employer, HR department, lawyer, or the police if you do not want to – with BeOnAlert you can ensure that others are ‘alerted’ to sexual harassment in a safe and secure way.

No, never! BeOnAlert will never tamper with any Reports. We will only take down Reports we believe to be false or fraudulent, or which violate our Terms of Use or Privacy Policy.

We will not automatically contact a therapist or psychologist on your behalf without your approval; however, with your permission, we can provide you with the contact details of a psychological professional.

They will then have access to the information published on the public registry. We will not share your name or any other details about you with your employer.

No, right now we do not contact The Accused if a report has been made pertaining to them.

No, we will not contact the police on your behalf about your case.
