I am a manager having issues with employees at work. Some of the issues are sexual harrassment, discrimination. I have been documenting things that have been going on throughtout the day on my work computer. Should I do this on my computer or a notebook. I did already documetn things on my computer and sent it to my home e-mail. I am not sure if this is such a good idea. Please let me kow your thoughts.
If the documentation is work-related, which is what is sounds like, it is likely ok. You could back up the documentation with a hard copy/print out.
However, it may not be a good idea to send things to your home computer because the information could be disseminated to unintended parties.
can I show you some of the things i wrote? Can you tell me if I am documenting properly? i am new to management and these issues.
