Procedural fairness

The concept of procedural fairness is derived from the principles of natural justice. A process that demonstrates procedural fairness is one in which:

  • decision makers act fairly and provide reasons for decisions;
  • the person affected is given a fair hearing;
  • all parties to a matter have an opportunity to put their case where an adverse decision or finding is made;
  • the decision-maker is impartial and acts without bias when making the decision;
  • all relevant arguments are considered and irrelevant arguments are excluded; and
  • the decision, the reasons for the decision, and the evidence upon which the decision is made, are explained and are capable of review.
