Hi there

I work in a small not for profit training organisation. I have been issued with a first warning letter from my employer that makes a number of false allegations. I am meeting with the CEO and the Chair to discuss this. The Chair says he will lead the meeting so he gets both sides of the story.

I want to have a particular support person who is not an employee of the organisation with me. But the Chair wants me to select another employee as a support person.

Can I take the person of my choosing even if the Chair may not want him to attend?

I look forward to your response.


What rubbish, you can choose who you want as a support person.

it is a matter for you, not the chair who you want to bring.

Please accept.

No I asked what role the support person could take in the meeting.


Can they speak in the meeting or only intervene if I need time out or the I am in trouble or being threatened etc?




the support person can take notes, speak in the interview and make general observations.

Please accept
