Confession may be good for the soul but sometimes not so good for an employee.
The old saying, ‘nobody talks, everybody walks’ holds some truth. As a rule of thumb, there is never a need to volunteer for interviews or to give evidence.
If you are requested to make a statement or provide evidence as a witness:
- If appropriate, request when it is needed or schedule a meeting so you can prepare.
- Take the time to make a note of the facts on a file note for your own use, preferably in chronological order. We recommend you do this even if a meeting or interview has already taken place.
- If time allows, contact NPAQ Support to discuss how to proceed.
Best practice: Make notes if you think an event you are been involved in or witness to may become an issue.
