HelloThis is Samuel. I will discuss this and provide you information in this regard.Generally, it is up to company policy. And with "administrative" hearings of this nature, generally the answer is no you do not have those rights.If you want to give me your state of employment, I can review those statutes to see if there is anything more specific than it would have to be policy of the employer.
Thank you.I suggest there are no laws in the District of Columbia mandating the employer allow you to have a colleague or other witness present during an administrative hearing with the employer. This would be up to company policy. And if they have allowed in the past, then they would need to allow it with all employees
