Apologies for the slight delay, I experienced some temporary connection issues earlier. If this is an investigatory meeting then the employee has no legal right to be accompanied. This right only applies at a formal disciplinary hearing, an appeal hearing or a grievance hearing. However, if his mental capacity means that he may not actually understand the process or reasons for the meeting then you would need to consider allowing someone to accompany him. This would ensure a fair process is followed. So it really comes down to his condition and how it would affect him in the meeting. If it is going to prove a big issue and affect the fairness of the hearing then you would be better advised to consider allowing him to be accompanied.IMPORTANT: As professionals on this site, it is extremely important that our customers rate the service we provide.
