This is especially the case at Massage Envy. Massage Envy is a massage parlor and spa chain with franchises across the country. Misconduct and abuse at massage parlors can take many forms, such as inappropriate touching, groping, massaging areas of the body without proper consent, non-consensual penetration, and more. This abuse can impose, intentionally or otherwise, severe and lasting physical and emotional distress. There are options available if you find yourself abused during a massage.
Ride Share Abuse
Over 100 Uber drivers have been accused of sexually abusing customers in the United States in the last four years. CNN investigated and discovered that drivers appeared to prey on intoxicated women. Uber requires all corporate employees to undergo sexual harassment training, but this policy do not apply to drivers. Lack of screening and safety training creates an environment for a predator to sexually abuse his or her victim.
