Hello
Welcome to Just Answer
Thank you for your question.
If your employer invites you to a disciplinary meeting then you can ask a 'companion' to come with you.
This companion can be:
a trade union representative, or
an official employed by a trade union, or
a colleague
It is also worth checking your contract of employment as sometimes they will say a wider class of 'companion' whom you can bring with.
Your employer might also have a policy about this - so also check your handbook.
If you are not a member of a trade union - then this does not prevent you from approaching a trade union and asking if they will attend with you.
This is a useful link to find an appropriate trade union for you:
