We Advise You On Evidence
As your employment lawyer, we will provide you with recommendations of what evidence we need from you in order to build your case. We recommend that you start gathering as much evidence as possible since employers may try to tamper with your employee personnel file or block you from accessing email, all of which are also illegal forms of retaliation. These are some of the documents that you can start gathering:
- Screenshots of texts, messages in apps like Slack and Microsoft teams or copies of emails
- Proof of your professional qualifications such as your education, certification, and licenses
- Your personnel file including your attendance records and past performance reviews
- Photographs that you’ve taken of sexual harassment, unsafe working conditions or of coworkers or supervisors trying to sabotage you
- Photographs, videos and images that have been shared with you that are racist, sexist, homophobic or lewd and sexual in nature
You should also start writing down all instances of discrimination against you or others in a journal that you keep in a safe place. Write down the date, time, who made the statements, who witnessed the statements, where it was made, and the context of the conversation.
