User avatar Dear murphy1982,

We are neither qualified nor allowed to give that kind of advice on our public forums. You should discuss this with a lawyer. He will advise you if it would be beneficial to press charges or not.

I understand that you are looking for evidence to strengthen your case against your co-workers. From a legal stand point this may or may not be necessary. Discuss the details with your lawyer and good luck with your case!

Best regards,
