Yes, always take meticulous notes. In some states like CA it is illegal to record a conversation without a person's consent.

I have gone up against HR a few times myself and no matter how much proof I have of misconduct by someone above me, they've always found my allegations to be "unsubstantiated." They always protect their own.

Thank you for this advice and context.
