France Pushes For Accountability of Social Media Sites for Hate Speech

The French government announced that they will hold any web companies that host extremis messages accountable.  The French president wants to introduce a law that would make web companies, such as Google and Facebook, "accomplices" in crimes of hate speech. 

This backlash against hate speech is similar to what we have seen in the U.S. with the recent anti-bullying campaigns on social media.  Hate speech and bullying can happen in the workplace.  If you feel you have been subjected to either, please contact us today.
