Employers have a responsibility to provide every employee with a safe workplace free from harm, whether they work on a job site or online. In today's world, however, there are negligent employers who expose employees to dangerous conditions that can lead to serious harm, illness, or death. 

Workplace safety law is a legal area dedicated to protecting the rights of workers in these situations. The Joseph Saveri Law Firm, LLP is proud to specialize in helping individuals affected by unsafe working conditions or practices. We have filed numerous safe workplace litigations on behalf of workers around the United States. If you or someone you care about has experienced an injury or illness due to unsafe workplace conditions, our experienced attorneys can provide the guidance and advocacy you need.


In recent years, our firm has specialized in assisting content moderators at large social media companies such as Facebook and YouTube by forcing them to protect their content moderation teams from the harms of their work. Every day, millions of hours of content are uploaded to media platforms worldwide, and while the majority of the content adheres to community guidelines, there is a percentage of objectionable content that is uploaded to the sites. That content is flagged by users or algorithms before it makes the public square and is forwarded for review.

The teams of content moderators that these companies hire to view and delete objectionable content are exposed to images of child sexual abuse, rape, torture, bestiality, beheadings, suicide, murder, and other content that fail to meet company standards. This is in service of protecting corporate profits, their sites’ good reputation, and the ability to continue to be “welcoming” social arenas.

This perilous situation leaves content moderators alone to wade through all the flagged unsavory material. They often work in isolated, high-pressure environments and must quickly review a large volume of content while adhering to strict guidelines. Content moderators are the guardians of these platforms: in essence, the “front-line soldiers” who protect all of us and give advertisers peace of mind by ensuring that all rules are followed, and that disturbing content is eliminated.  

Content moderation is a necessary part of large tech companies’ operations. Tragically, their valuable work comes at the cost to their own mental health. Inexcusably, these companies often fail to provide content moderators with adequate support or training to deal with the stress of their job. We sued to change that.

Our firm believes that companies have an obligation to protect their employees from the psychological hazards of content moderation. We have filed content moderation safe workplace litigations against Facebook, YouTube, and TikTok for failing to provide safe work conditions for their moderators. It is our mission to hold negligent parties such as these responsible and ensure that no other moderators suffer the same abuses as our clients.


We believe everyone has the right to work in safe conditions free from undue stress or harm. In filing multiple content moderator lawsuits, we are trying to ensure that no moderators, current or future, have to endure undue psychological trauma. If you are a content moderator and have been exposed to graphic content, please do not hesitate to reach out to us. Or when employers fail to meet similar conditions of safety in other professions, we are here to help. We offer a free assessment of your case and guarantee full confidentiality, as provided by law. 

Regardless of whether you are a content moderator, if you are being put in an unsafe situation by an employer, our firm is interested in hearing from you. Our goal is to foster a world where employees are treated fairly and not put in compromising situations. Contact us today if you have experienced an injury or illness due to unsafe workplace conditions.
