Documentation can be a key piece of your sexual harassment case

Most of us go into the office daily with ambitions of getting our work done, building relationships with coworkers and progressing the mission of our company as well as our own career objectives.

The Office of the NYS Attorney General Civil Rights Bureau has outlined a lot of resources for anyone who needs support with this matter, including various hotlines and a way to contact advocates.
