When any problems exist, a report is written to document any incidents in an employee's permanent HR file. This protects employers who might need to prove actions, who need to warn employees about rule violations, or to justify administrative action such as firing for prohibited actions. When writing a report, keep in mind the potential legal uses for the report, which might include sexual harassment, money laundering or other serious allegations.

I know it seems scary to report sexual, racial, or other harassment to human resources. Some employees want to refuse or delay this meeting. But being called into a meeting like this is actually a good sign.
No excuses accepted, no exceptions made. In Supreme-land, nobody is ever justifiably afraid of being beaten to a pulp, fired, demoted, or made miserable if they complain. Yeah, yeah, I know.
But it's not my rule. You still have to do it. Once the employer receives a report of discrimination or discriminatory harassment, they are supposed to conduct a reasonable investigation.
If the discrimination or harassment has occurred, they must take prompt action to correct the situation. With a little preparation and a little backbone, this meeting may be just what you need to make your work life peaceful again.
Make notes to take with you.
Write down everything that was said or done where you were singled out for harassment or different treatment due to your race, age, sex, national origin, pregnancy, color, genetic information, religion or other protected status.
If any comments were made about your protected status, write those down too. Were you denied a raise, paid less, denied a promotion, or disciplined when others in a different category different race, different sex, younger, non-disabled, etc.
Try to recall dates, who made the statement or singled you out, witnesses, and as much detail as you can provide. Write it all down so you remember. Write down names of everyone in your same category same race, same sex, etc. Write down names of everyone in a different category from you who was treated better.
If you have written proof — emails, memos, photos, recordings not illegal tape recordings of conversations thoughor other documents, gather them to bring to the meeting. Take good notes of the questions asked and the answers you gave.
If you have an attorney already, let them know about the meeting. While they may not be allowed to attend, they might ask if they can. At the very least, they might give you some tips on what to say and what to expect.
If you're represented, the company attorney can't meet with you without your lawyer's permission. Stick to your guns. Your complaint is supposed to be confidential. The employer might discipline or fire you for violating confidentiality.
Make sure to focus on your complaint. If they fire you, contact a lawyer. Make sure you have copies of your notes, evidence, witness lists, etc. That means the harasser will probably find out about your complaint.Human resources reports are an integral component to effectively manage your business’s human resources (HR) activities and departments.
