Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
Hello! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney, admitted to practice in state and federal court. I'll be here to help today! Do you mind if I take a moment to review your question? By the way, the system will automatically ask for a phone call. I am happy to speak with you, but by no means are you required to accept it.
As an attorney, I would be very very careful about putting down anything on paper. The reason is because if you ever went to court because of an EEOC issue or any other issue, they could pull out the statements you said you made and use them against you. In any court proceedings, admissions by a party can be used against them. Thus, HR is likely doing this to protect themselves in the event of a lawsuit. You should not have to fill out anything that is not pursuant to your employment contract at all.
You may want to advise HR that you would like to speak with your attorney before answering more questions or putting anything in writing.
