Weingarten Rights guarantee an employee the right to union representation during an investigatory interview by the employer. If the interview could, in any way, lead to the employee being disciplined or terminated, or affect his or her personal working conditions, he or she should respectfully request that a union representative or officer be present at the meeting. If representation is requested and denied, the employee may choose not to answer any questions.
