Hello and thank you for entrusting me to assist you. My name is ***** ***** I will do everything I can to answer your question.
Everything entered into such proceedings is generally entered under penalty of perjury, meaning it would be the crime of perjury to enter a forged document. Forgery is also a crime in and of itself, as you can see here.
I hope this answers your question.
I'm not sure I understand the situation you are describing. Can you clarify?
If the documents were provably forged, it would arguably be a crime to cover this up or hide it. The crime would likely be charged as conspiracy to commit perjury, or simply perjury itself.
You originally asked if it was a crime to enter forged docs into "New York state equal employment opportunity commissions investigation." I assume that meant in the context of an official proceeding, such as a hearing of some kind that was put on by the EEOC. In that instance, anything admitted into evidence would typically be admitted under penalty or perjury. But if we are simply talking about an internal company complaint, the rules against perjury don't apply. Since there would be no underlying perjury there could of course be no conspiracy to commit that perjury.
