Workers have a statutory right to be accompanied to a disciplinary or grievance hearing under s.10 of the Employment Relations Act 1999. For these purposes, s.13 of the Act defines a disciplinary hearing as one that could result in the administration of a formal warning, the taking of some other action (for example suspension without pay, demotion or dismissal), or the confirmation of a warning or some other action. A grievance hearing is one that concerns a complaint in relation to an employer's statutory or common law duty to a worker.
