CINCINNATI -- If anyone’s feel like they are the object of harassment in the workplace, know this: It’s not right and it’s not appropriate.

That’s what Cathleen Snyder, director of client relations at Strategic HR inc., tells workers.

In recent weeks, high-profile sexual assault and harassment cases have swarmed the headlines. Prevalent Hollywood producers like Harvey Weinstein and news anchors like Matt Lauer have been accused of harassing subordinates and colleagues.

Snyder has spent almost 20-years working in human resources. She spoke as an expert to 9 On Your Side about reporting workplace sexual harassment.

“Something I might suggest is gather your facts ahead of time,” she said during a Facebook Live broadcast with WCPO. “Sometimes it helps to write it down. There are times that chances are, if you’re bringing it to HR … they might ask you to write down your thoughts and give a statement. That’s a good place to start.”
