What evidence do you need to prove sexual harassment at work?

Evidence is very helpful when proving that sexual harassment has occurred at work. The best way to collect this is to document everything related to the harassment in as much detail as possible.

Printing texts or other communications and keeping a log with details of the harassment can demonstrate that it happened. Creating a record of the steps taken to report and stop the harassment is also good. For example, taking notes on in-person meetings or conversations and printing copies of emails to supervisors or Human Resources will show exactly what was said, when a report was made and to whom. These pieces of evidence can increase credibility greatly in a sexual harassment case.
