Evidence Is information that is admissible proof of the facts in issue. It is usually something that can be perceived by the senses. It can be seen, heard, felt, tested or smelled. The stronger the evidence, the stronger the belief in the existence of the fact.
In most workplace harassment cases, statements, including statements from the person making the complaint and the person responding to the complaint (the parties) and witnesses make up the bulk of the evidence.
What is not evidence? Opinions, thoughts, conclusions are not evidence but inferences drawn from evidence. For example, a party or witness’ assessment of the good (or not so good) character of another person is not evidence.
