In some cases, employees may be reluctant to give evidence in disciplinary proceedings or arbitration proceedings. But this reluctance is not enough it is only where there is a real possibility of intimidation or if a witness fears for his or her safety that the possibility of in camera testimony arises. This will then mean that only the witness and the arbitrator will be in the room, and the arbitrator will, in some sense at least, step into the shoes of the parties’ representatives. The arbitrator will ask the questions and record answers.
