Wiengarten Rights

The Weingarten decision made by the US Supreme Court states that an employee who reasonably anticipates that an interview, meeting, or investigation may result in punitive or corrective action has the right to union representation. An employee cannot be threatened with discipline for insubordination for refusing to meet without a union representative and once the union representative is present they must be allowed to speak on behalf of the employee.

Denial of these rights is an unfair labor practice
