Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello, my name is ***** ***** it is my pleasure to assist you with your question today. Is he not part of a union?
I have not received a reply to the last reply i sent
I have not provided one yet
If he is not in a union then he cannot just get someone who is a union rep to come along and represent him at the meeting. He would either have to find a company which he would have to pay for their services, such as what you have found in your case, or he would have to take a colleague with him instead. So to be able to use the services of a union rep he would need to be a member of a union first. It is probably too late to join one now and expect them to provide a representative to come with him next week so he would wither have to get one privately or he would have to find a colleague to come along with him. These are the only two options which the law allows him to use in a disciplinary hearing.
do you know any local company who could provide this service in portsmouth
What company have you contacted so far?
Castle associates. but they are based in Nottingham
These companies are not that common to be honest, I have checked the options in Plymouth but cannot find one. His best option is if he is part of a union and as he is not then it is best to consider finding a colleague instead
It is Portsmouth not plymouth
Sorry my error, I did mean Portsmouth, typed Plymouth in error
Can I clarify anything else for you?
ok if you want to close the question could you please select one of the ratings options - it may not work to click on but you can type it on here instead, thanks
I already knew your answer I was hoping to get more practical help with names of company or union representatives
We are a question and answer service, we provide answers to legal quesaitons, we do not recommend anyone and as mentioned even after I have checked I cannot find such companies where you are looking - they are rather rare, this is not a commonly provided service by private companies, you really need to be looking at trade unions for this support but obviously have to be a member first
you are welcome
