Our series on Harassment at Work continues today w/ a focus on the importance of documentation.

If you do sit down with your employer or HR manager, make sure that someone is taking notes during the meeting. One of the biggest problems I hear from people who have reported harassment but were ignored is that they had a verbal meeting with their superiors, but there are no notes or documents showing that the meeting happened or that harassment was discussed. If you do meet with a manager or supervisor, make sure you or someone there is taking notes, and make sure to request a copy. If you sign anything, make a copy. If no one takes notes, send a follow-up email detailing the meeting and what you talked about. If you can, use audio to record the meeting—depending on the state, you can record meetings as long as one of the parties recording consents, so if you verbally consent, that’s enough to hit the record button. However, this depends state-by-state.
