Dear {{Name of Recipient}},

This is a formal complaint of harassment that I have been subjected to, and I request early action and proper investigation of the situation. I work in the {{Department}} in {{Organization}} and have been employed here for {{Number of years}} years. The harassment started on {{Date}} when {{Name Harasser}} said that I would not be able to get a promotion just because I am a woman. The verbal abuse took place on the premises of the company. I’ve kept a log of his actions: 1. On {{Date}}, {{Name Harasser}} asked me on a dinner date and has shown unprofessional intentions, which I politely and kindly rejected, I kept this to myself; 2. On {{Date}}, {{Name Harasser}} touched my arms and briefly my buttocks, and showed unprofessional intentions, which I politely and kindly rejected, I kept this to myself; 3. On {{Date}}, {{Name Harasser}} yelled at me at the office, several colleagues were witness. 4. On {{Date}}, {{Name Harasser}} spread false rumors about me around the office. 5. On {{Date}}, {{Name Harasser}} yelled at me because I refused to bring him a {{Item}}. 6. On {Date}}, {{Name Harasser}} threatened to steal my phone if I didn’t help him with his share of work. 7. On {{Date}}, {{Name Harasser}} told me that I deserved to be fired. Along with the letter, I have attached the statements of witnesses, {{Name witness}}, and {{Name witness2}}, who heard the verbal abuse. I would like to point out that these repeated instances of harassment have caused mistress and anxiety, and they have been affecting my performance at work. I expect that, per company policy, this matter will be thoroughly investigated but that my personal information will be confidential. I expect swift action and understand if you want to have a personal meeting to discuss this serious accusation.
