Right To Be Accompanied
One of the main questions the NORI HR & Employment Law Team are asked is “Does an employee have the right to be accompanied to a disciplinary or grievance hearing?”
In this video, Senior HR Advisor Gary Foster explores the considerations around who can be accompanied and by whom including:
- Being accompanied by a colleague
- Being accompanied by a trade union representative
- Employees under the age of 18
- Parents and guardians
- Solicitors accompanying employees based on jobs types.
