I was issued a chargesheet alleging that I was not working as per company standards, misconduct, not performing as per their standards. In which I submitted a reply in time. Management was not satisfied and called a domestic enquiry. In first call I requested a union office bearer as defence rep. Which was not granted but a colleague. When accompanying with colleague, he received bundles of mails and calls from management that neither he can assist me. He was disturbed even at the enquiry venue.This time applied again for defence rep from union.
But the E.o. the time I have been called multiple times from the beginning and never paid any expenses of travel and stay during enquiry. management again rejected the request for defence rep from outside. Now I have no confidence in my colleague. I have no confidence in E.o also , that even addressing all these unjust actions from management he stays still and believed to be biased on management, in all enquiry sittings he inclined towards management. if anyone provide me related information in an employee point of view and rules relating to conduct a free and fair enquiry with quoting respective laws, it would be great.

Dear Jagjivan
Please refer the standing orders applicable to you for clause on domestic enquiry to ensure who can defend your case.
As per model standing order a workman have right to take help of union office bearer. (I hope this is case of a workman).
[(b-a) In the enquiry, the workman shall be entitled to appear in person or to be represented by an office-bearer of a trade union of which he is a member.
