Formal Investigation HRCO
Formal Investigation

When a human rights complaint has not been resolved through the early resolution processes, the HRCO Investigations Officer may conduct a formal investigation. A formal investigation includes:

  • ​Interviewing the parties involved
  • Gathering information and evidence
  • Investigation Officer's findings and report

During a formal investigation, the HRCO Investigations Officer will interview everyone involved, which can be a lengthy process. The Investigations Officer will require a complainant to supply evidence to support their position, including written documents, names of witnesses, emails and other relevant information. Once interviews are completed and the necessary information has been collected and assessed, the Investigations Officer will write a report based on the findings. This report will determine that the matter has either been:

  1. Substantiated; or
  2. Not substantiated

The re​port is then reviewed by the Human Rights Commissioner before being sent to the parties.
