New Acas guidance on suspension

Acas has published new guidance on staff suspensions at work: Suspension during an investigation at work.

You won’t be surprised to learn that the guidance’s starting point is that employees should only be suspended (during an investigation at work) if there is no other option, and that employers should be mindful of the effect that suspension (which is not in itself a disciplinary sanction) might have on them.

The guidance offers practical advice on managing suspensions including, what to do if an employee is not well enough to participate in a disciplinary investigation, and how to support an employee’s mental health during a suspension.
