Hello, can anyone help me please with what support my 24 year old son can have at work for a meeting? He raised or should I say I helped him with a grievance against him supervisor who treats him badly, she is a bully in my opinion! They’re now acting on this grievance with an investigation which my son has to attend on his own on Thursday morning whilst he’s at work. He is not aloud to have any representation at this stage but he will go into that meeting and not know what they’re talking about!? Can we insist under the disability act 2010 that he should have representation?
Im so worried for him as I think they’re trying to get him out!?
I'm not a lawyer, but I would have hoped so. I would expect representation to be allowed for any employee with a grievance.
If this is a company of any size, they will have an HR Dept. They should…
This sounds harsh. I've been in a similar(ish) position before. I had to read up a stack of ACAS things and eventually they backed down a bit.
I called ACAS who helped give me advice as to my rights…
Yes - The HR dept is only there to protect the company and management - not for your son.
It might be worth asking for a copy of the company policies that they are using against your son - if they deviate…
just agreeing with calmerchameleon who is spot on in all details
so Contact ACAS.
Such meetings are awful.. They are so one sided its unbelievable. Have you rang the NAS helpline ?
I rang acas but didn’t find them very forthcoming, that said I did use a term they quoted when I spoke to hr again and he now has someone from his work supporting him in the investigation meeting tomorrow thank goodness!
that is such good news for everyone
