Notice of Suspension from Work for Alleged Misconduct
Response to Request for an Employment Reference
My Suspension Letter is designed to be used to suspend an employee where there have been allegations of misconduct against the employee, which require an investigation. The letter explains that suspension is a precautionary measure to allow an investigation to take place and clarifies that suspension is not a presumption of guilt or disciplinary action. Pay and benefits should remain unaltered. The letter details what the employee should and should not do during the suspension period. 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 unfair dismissal. My Reference Response letter is a suggested format for you to use when responding to a request for a reference. The content provides the basic factual information about the employee and their employment with you.

Return to Work Meeting Record
Time off for Dependants Policy
Return to Work Meetings are useful for both short-term and long-term sickness. To be most effective the meeting should be held on the first day back from work. In most cases the meeting will be informal and last no more than 5 minutes, but where the employee has an unsatisfactory level of absence the meetings will be more formal. My Time off for Dependants Policy summarises the statutory right to take unpaid time off work to deal with emergencies involving a dependant.
