With a few clicks of the mouse, employers and employees alike can now find out if a manager or potential boss in the United States is facing, or has been convicted, of sexual harassment charges. eBossWatch, a website that allows people to anonymously rate their superiors, has launched a national sexual harassment registry and intends to introduce a Canadian version later this year.

Only eBossWatch, and not users, can post information to the sexual harassment registry, using press reports and court documents.

“We wanted to create a resource that would help people evaluate potential bosses, potential employers and managerial candidates,” said Asher Adelman, founder of eBossWatch in Las Vegas.
