Disciplinary hearings: Teaching assistant had no art.6 right to legal representation at disciplinary hearing

This report relates to 1 case(s)

In R (on the application of G) v Governors of X School and Y City Council [2011] IRLR 756 SC, the Supreme Court held that a teaching assistant was not entitled to legal representation at a disciplinary hearing leading to dismissal, when the referral process that could lead to his appearance on a "barred list", which would end his ability to practise his profession, was entirely separate and distinct.
