Suspension

Meaning & Definition

Suspension

Suspension is when an employee is sent home from work, usually while receiving full pay. Employers are entitled to suspend an employee pending an investigation of gross misconduct or other serious disciplinary matter. The right to suspend will usually be set out in employees' contract of employment or the staff handbook (if any). Whilst a suspension is not a disciplinary action by itself, it often leads to disciplinary proceedings.
