Suspending an Employee During Pregnancy

Letter Suspending an Employee During Pregnancy

It is important to note that this specimen letter the Employer must show that it has “reasonable and proper” cause to suspend. The reason why suspension is appropriate should be identified in this letter.

Suspension should never be a routine or “knee jerk” response to these types of cases.

 

Every effort should be made to consider whether alternative steps can be taken which control or eliminate the risk of further allegations arising.

Suspension is not a neutral act and should be used sparingly to avoid giving rise to complaints of, constructive dismissal, discrimination, detrimental treatment etc.
