Dealing with Government Agencies


Government agencies are established by the government and are accountable for their actions to both the government and the public. Common activities of these administrative bodies include such things as making rules and decisions, issuing licenses and permits, determining eligibility for certain programs or benefits, conducting investigations and imposing penalties or fines, and revoking licenses or grants. When a government agency makes a decision, there are legal mechanisms in place to ensure accountability and to ensure fairness.

Fair Decision-Making

Administrative bodies have a general duty of fairness throughout their decision-making process. This duty applies to any administrative body that exercises a decision-making power which could affect your rights, or even a privilege or benefit that you may be entitled to.

Proper Use of Authority

Administrative bodies are authorized to make certain types of decisions and must use their discretion properly.

Challenging a Decision

If you are not satisfied with a decision from an administrative body, you may be able to have the matter reviewed.

PLEA can provide you with information to help you understand many legal matters you, a family member or friend may be facing.
