This Suspension Policy sets out when a suspension may be given, the processes that the Company will follow in the event of suspension and the obligations of the suspended employee during the period of suspension.
In all cases where there is an allegation of misconduct which requires investigation, the Suspension Policy should be read in conjunction with the Disciplinary Policy and Disciplinary Procedure and Guidance Notes: Disciplinary Procedure.
This policy clarifies that suspension is a precautionary measure to allow an investigation to take place and sets out that suspension is not a presumption of guilt or disciplinary action.
An unjustified suspension period may amount to a breach of the implied term of trust and confidence which could lead to the employee’s resignation and a claim of constructive dismissal.
This Suspension Policy is in open format. Either enter the requisite details in the highlighted fields or adjust the wording to suit your purposes.
