You can ask to have a work colleague or trade union official with you. Check your contract of employment and your employer’s disciplinary procedure to see if they allow others to attend disciplinary hearings (for example a family member or a friend).
It is very uncommon that employers will allow you to be represented by a solicitor. If you have been accused of a very serious allegation which could prevent you from working in the same career or profession, you may be entitled to be accompanied by a legal representative. Take advice from our employment solicitors.
