Additionally, your employer may ask that you put your complaints in writing. Your Bronx employment law attorney can help you put your statement together.

Basic Information to Include in Your Written Complaint
Your Bronx employment law lawyer will likely suggest some basic information to include when communicating with your employer. In general, you may wish to include examples of the types of discrimination, harassment or retaliation you feel you were subjected to. Sometimes, after thorough investigation, more incidents are revealed. Although your written complaint should include specific examples, reserve the option of including more information later. You should mention any witnesses to the discriminatory conduct and outline any reasons for delaying coming forward. If you are also interviewed, make sure to take a copy of your written statement along with you and ask that it be included as a supplement. Always have your lawyer review it first.
