" Upon his/her request, an employee may be represented at an investigatory interview if he/she reasonably believes that disciplinary action may result. Prior to the interview, the employee shall be informed of the general nature of the matter being investigated. He/she may request to consult with his/her representative, if any. The right to representation does not apply to meetings held exclusively to inform an employee of a previously made disciplinary decision unless the CSU proposes to discuss or modify the disciplinary decision. If the representative an employee requests is unavailable, the employee may request alternate representation. The CSU is not obliged to postpone the interview, nor to suggest or secure the alternate representation; however, the employee shall not be required to answer any questions without a representative present, unless he/she voluntarily chooses to do so. At its discretion, the CSU may decline to hold any interview if the employee requests representation."
