Who can attend disciplinary, dismissal or redundancy meetings

Under the Employment Relations Act 1999 Section 10, an employee has a right to be accompanied at a disciplinary or grievance hearing. This includes hearings where the employer is thinking of making redundancies

The employee can ask for either a trade union representative or work colleague to be with him

The employee may ask for the hearing to be postponed, within specified limits, to an alternative time, if the companion cannot attend the meeting at the time scheduled by the employer
The companion may address the hearing and confer with the employee, but cannot answer questions on his or her behalf.
