  1. Industrial Instruments
  2. Fair Work Act

We have a new HR manager who wants to use “excited utterances” as part of staff incident investigations. I cannot find any reference to this in the Handbook. Does this term exist within NSW/Australian law?
“Excited utterances” is not a term that exists under the Fair Work Act 2009 (Cth). Further information would be required to ascertain what context this term is being used.

Chapter W5 Workplace Investigations in the Handbook provides detailed information regarding workplace investigations.
