JOB SEEKER MEMBERS – FAQ

What are the benefits of a company record search?

ANSWER: If a company has a reputation for bullying employees or enables a bullying culture, anyone in their right mind would want to know ahead of time before investing valuable time, money and energy in the company. Keep in mind that if a company does not pop up in our database after a search has been conducted, it doesn’t mean the workplace is bully free. It simply means, no one has reported the company in question to us yet.

ANSWER: We contact companies with more than one bullying complaint in our database and make them aware of our service. We also offer companies help resources through our partners.

What is the scroll of disgrace?
