I would absolutely give HR those details. That way you can at least try to help prevent others from having to follow in your footsteps. If the company actually cares about the team they will at least investigate it.


For myself, I'd say be honest. But, if you think there is a chance you might want to work at the same company again you may want to consider being more political in your comments. There is a >0 chance your comments will make it back to your manager. You may be burning bridges if you are too blunt.


Thank you, I would rather be unemployed than ever work with that Manager again! It is about my mental health and there are too many companies on earth for me to want to ever go back there.

I go back and forth...I think it's definitely worth flagging if you're 100% okay burning that bridge (which it sounds like) so you might as well. Tbh my guess is HR already knows, but can't really do anything until enough people flag it as a reason for leaving etc


I honestly feel it might not make a difference as HR is usually more interested in protecting the company than the individuals affected but I will voice my concerns all the same. They can decide what they want to do with the information.

HR is probably well aware and will do what it takes to protect the company. They just want to make sure you won’t sue after you leave, so will be poking around with those questions. But once they hear you won’t sue, they won’t do anything.

Kind of aggravated with the example male leadership is setting right now with regard to parenting at CV. At least 5 men in leadership have had new babies in the last month and it seems like some have taken no time off or only the bare minimum. We have 12 weeks and should be encouraged to use it! If leadership isn’t taking advantage of their own policy, what does that say to the rest of the staff? In my perspective, this is likely further contributing to the gender disparity in CV leadership
