  • Right to be accompanied: £2 award after employer turns down employee's chosen companion

    Date:
    20 April 2017

    An employment tribunal has held that the employer breached the claimant's right to be accompanied when it refused to allow his chosen companions, trade union representatives, to accompany him at a disciplinary appeal hearing. However, it awarded compensation of £2 only, on the basis that the employer had understandable reasons for the refusal.
