The objective of the Hearing Tribunal and/or Complaint Review Committee (CRC) is to be an impartial member to hear discipline cases. Matters are referred to a hearing by the Complaints Director and the quasi-judicial process hears and makes independent decisions about the conduct of Alberta speech-language pathologists and audiologists. A complaint review committee has a role to ratify settlements and to review dismissals of complaints upon request of a complainant.
Under the HPA, a hearing tribunal or CRC must be comprised of at least two members from the roster and a sufficient number of public members (who must comprise 25% of the tribunal/CRC membership). To minimize risk, ACSLPA’s Hearing Director will typically appoint three members from the roster and one public member. This number should provide sufficient buffer should one member need to be released from their role part way through the process (e.g., sickness).
