Respond to an employee's request to tape record a grievance hearing

Key points

  • Where an employee makes a request to tape record a grievance hearing, the employer is generally not obliged to agree to it.
  • The employer should inform the employee about the arrangements that it has made for making a record of the hearing and explain that the employee and/or his or her companion may also make notes during the hearing.
  • The employer should consider whether or not the duty to make reasonable adjustments for a disabled employee applies in the particular circumstances.
