Audio: Workplace Investigations and Suspensions

November 29, 2018

We are dealing with investigations more and more often in the context of employment or HR law, and the reality is, as we often tell our employer clients, you cannot impose discipline, especially dismissal, until you investigate. You can’t act based upon allegations, or innuendo; you need to know the facts. Stuart discusses whether you can suspend employees who are the subject of an investigation, whether these suspensions are disciplinary or administrative, and whether suspensions should be with or without pay.
