Does an employee have the right to bring their attorney (instead of a co-worker) to a disciplinary meeting? If so, is the attorney allowed to actively participate in the meeting?
Is the attorney (or even a co-worker) then allowed to be present and attend follow-up meetings relating to the progress of the employee being disciplined?

Re: Weingarten Rights
Absent a collective bargaining agreement that specifically states that the employee may be represented in a disciplinary meeting by an attorney, the employer does not have to permit an attorney to attend.
