Two employees are suing Microsoft Because their jobs gave them PTSD

Two Microsoft employees claim the company made them look at photos and videos "designed to entertain some of the most twisted and sick minded people in the world." Now they're suing.

Courthouse News reports Henry Soto and Greg Blauert were part of Microsoft's online safety team whose job was to figure out what online content should be taken down and when it should be reported to police.

In that position, Soto and Blauert say they had to look at images of child pr0nography, murder, bestiality, and "indescribable s3xual a.ssault." They filed a lawsuit against Microsoft last month, accusing the company of negligence, disability discrimination, and violation of the Consumer Protection Act.

Both Soto and Blauert claim they're suffering from PTSD. Soto says Microsoft transferred him to the online safety team in 2008, and company policy forced him to stay there for a year and a half.

He says he had nightmares and hallucinations after seeing a girl "being abused and k!lled." Blauert says he had a breakdown in 2013 and is still being treated for "acute and debilitating PTSD." They claim Microsoft didn't warn them about what to expect in the job and didn't provide psychological support.

While Microsoft's digital crimes unit was given protections and support, Soto, Blauert, and the rest of the online safety team were simply told to go for a walk, take a smoke break, or play video games to clear their heads, the lawsuit states.

The men say their suggestions for improvements were ignored, per the Daily Beast. Microsoft responds: "We have put in place robust wellness programs to ensure the employees who handle this material have the resources and support they need.”

Apparently one of them was transferred. I'm guessing it was involuntary. It was Probably on some you either take this new role, or walk away from the company ish:

Regardless, you're not required to continue working for the company, there's no contract....you don't' like the job, leave.

My guy, not sure what you do? But finding work isn't that easy in today's marketplace. Even for Microsoft employees.

But that is nether here nor there, again, as the text implies to me this employee more than likely DID NOT know the extent of what his job entailed. In his mind, and I can vouch because I've had it happen to me, he probably thought the job transfer would be a more lateral move then anything else.

A slight change of title and maybe more or less, one or two added job descriptions, for what he was already doing.

I'm sure he didn't know he'd be looking at torture pr0n and animal mutilations. With that being said I don't necessarily agree with them suing the company for some BS PTSD diagnosis. But at the same time I can totally see where the employees would be scared to make that move from a company like a Microsoft to a god knows what. People have families and kids, man. And a lot of dude's are scared to make that move.

If anything at all, I would fault Microsoft for callousness - when he went to management, and they told him to walk it off. bonehead action. And not adequately detailing what the job would entail, at least for the one dude.

Just my 2.

This callousness is everywhere and usually belongs to any immediate management of a company. It keeps things moving and spares a decrease in production for every little thing. I don't approve of it at all but on the business end you want your team production high so you don't turn into a manager being managed.

I like how they used the words FORCED and TRANSFERRED(without saying was offered).

Company policy is company policy. You weren't forced. You agreed to adhere by the policy when you signed your offer letter.
