Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello. My name is***** am a solicitor here to help you with your question. I will respond as soon as practicable which will be some time today.
I see no legal reason why you should not appeal the result. I would want to know what the department's appeals/complaints process is and follow that. Plus, whether this is the only opportunity to appeal.
In terms of the appeal itself, I suggest that you consider which grounds you use and make the grounds as neutral and factual as possible. For example, claiming bias is easy to say but you will need to be clear on the detail you put on your grounds.
I don't propose any legal remedies because generally you are expected to exhaust complaint routes, such as your appeal.
I hope this answers your question. Any queries, let me know.
