We’re on a mission to change the way
organizations and their people view misconduct.

About Us

Make Workspaces Safer Places from Top to Bottom.

From gender bias to harassment and bullying in the workplace, employees and organizations are negatively impacted by workplace misconduct every day. Yet, 75% of employees who are victimized don’t report incidents because they don’t trust the system. We don’t think that’s okay. So we’re harnessing the latest cutting-edge technology to make it better, for everyone.



We protect employees and organizations when confronted with harassment and discrimination issues and bullying in the workplace.



We seek to understand, uncover the truth and unify employers and employees by establishing a clear path to resolution.



Employees and organizations rely on our strong team of professionals to bring timely resolution to harassment and discrimination issues.

How a Big Idea Comes to Be

#MeToo and #TimesUp

The #MeToo and #TimesUp social movements against sexual violence and harassment, assault, and workplace discrimination gained momentum. The movements brought to light the pervasiveness of harassment and discrimination in our workplaces. They also inspired Work Shield’s co-founders, Jennifer Pope, Jared Pope, and Travis Foster to find a way to make it better.

Discovered a Broken Process

While practicing law with a focus on human resources, ERISA, benefits and employment matters, we discovered a root cause of why incidents persist in our workplaces – the way incidents were reported and managed internally actually made things worse. It was bad for employees, and bad for organizations.

Found a Win-Win Solution

Turns out, the solution was pretty simple – the only way to protect both the employees and organizations is to remove the organization from both reporting and incident investigations.
