Synopsis

Investigation Prior to Taking Disciplinary Action Against an Employee

Description

An employer is usually entitled to suspend you at work pending an investigation of gross misconduct or other serious disciplinary matter. The right to suspend by employers will usually be set out in your contract of employment or staff handbook, and which will also set out a non –exhaustive list of when the decision will be exercised. Usually, you are suspended on full pay, unless your contract of employment provides otherwise.

 

The benefits for an employer in suspending an employee are numerous. They may include:

  • To highlight to the employee the seriousness of the matter and breakdown of trust;
  • To immediately stop the employee carrying on the gross misconduct that is being alleged;
  • To stop the employee interacting with other employees or clients/customers of the employer, which may otherwise cause a detrimental effect of the business;
  • To enable an employer to properly investigate without hindrance from the employee;
  • In high profile cases, it is important to remove the employee from the public eye as soon as possible.
