Step 2: Provide a written statement

We understand you may feel a range of emotions when preparing to meet with our office. In order to help alleviate some of the potential stress or anxiety, you will have the opportunity to submit a written statement. Written statements are not mandatory; however, we do highly recommend you submit one as it allows you an opportunity to share your perspective of what happened in advance of our meeting.

Preparing a statement can help you organize your thoughts and ensure you share everything important to you so your Hearing Officer can make the most informed decision when deliberating an outcome.

Content for the written statement can include 

  • Your mindset when making your decision,
  • External/internal factors,
  • What you may have felt during the incident,
  • Additional documentation (receipts, screenshots, work schedules, etc.)

Please submit your written statement at least 24 hours in advance of your hearing.
