Just curious. When an employee gets called by HR do managers usually know the or get notified by the reason? Or do HR wait for the meeting and let employee and manager know what is the concern/complaint/disciplinary?

If it's a disciplinary reason, then yes, the manager not only already knows the reason, but is likely the one that called for the meeting in the first place. 

Good luck. Generally, when it's a meeting taking place in HR, that's a pretty ominous sign.

Do not go to the meeting alone.

I thought managers were the reason employees get called to HR besides some of the onboarding and maintenance documentation

Sometimes it happens when HR is notified of a HIPAA violation through internal audits or outside complaints. In those situations, often the manager doesn’t know any details either.

What do you mean? Take a friend, trusted person, etc? I'm curious about this because usually when there is a 'meeting', they'll team up with 2-3 people without you knowing.

Attorney or union rep.

I would LOVE to see HR's face when an employee shows up at a meeting with their attorney.

Are unions common in certain parts of the country? There are not many unions in my area.

I've worked in several states: AZ, CO, CA, OR, WA, MT, WI, and MN. Only AZ and CO did not have a union presence. All the other states did. I would venture a guess that the Northeast US also has a strong union presence.
