Employee’s Right to Union Representation

In a 1975 case (NLRB vs. Weingarten, Inc., 420 U.S. 251, 88 LRRM 2689), the U.S. Supreme Court announced the rights of unionized employees to have a union representative present during investigatory interviews. These rights have become known as the Weingarten rights.  Employees have Weingarten rights only during investigatory interviews. An investigatory interview occurs when a supervisor questions an employee to obtain information which could be used as a basis for discipline or asks an employee to defend his or her conduct.
