The emergence of Internet mediums as the most common method of communication has introduced new elements into combating sexual harassment in the workplace.While the Internet has provided an array of benefits and advantages for today's society, its darker side has substantially emerged as Internet users are being subjected to online discrimination, sexual harassment, identity theft, cyberstalking, and cyberbullying on a daily basis.As mentioned above, sexual harassment on the Internet can occur in a number of ways.In 1993, Blakey filed a complaint for sexual discrimination in violation of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act.During litigation, Blakey's co-workers continued to make harassing, gender-based messages aimed at her, which were posted on a company website.The Court noted that the conduct at issue arose out of employee relationships and was therefore relevant, regardless of where the harassment occurred.
