Netflix allegedly implemented a creative, yet outwardly restrictive employee policy aimed to reduce harassment in the workplace. The reported new rules prohibit employees from looking at fellow co-workers for more than five seconds.
"Senior staff went to a harassment meeting to learn what is and isn't appropriate," an on-set runner for the sci-fi series Black Mirror told The Sun. "Looking at anyone longer than five seconds is considered creepy."
Another ban under the alleged anti-harassment policy includes asking co-workers for their phone numbers. Unless the employee has given specific permission to reveal their phone number, someone asking for it is considered inappropriate behavior, according to the on-set runner.
