Re: Suspension Period

Hi, I have a query here for suspension period that follow section 14(2) For the purposes of an inquiry under subsection (1), the employer may suspend the employee from work for a period not exceeding two weeks but shall pay him not less than half of his wages for such period;

If let say the situation is for the case of stolen, we issued the worker a show cause letter on 28/04/08 and he suppose to reply the show cause and submit to us by 2/05/08 but he didn't turn up until 6/05/08, he came to submitted his show cause letter for this incident, straight away we issue him letter to attend DI on 8/05/08, but on 8/05/08 he didn't turn up and the next day we post register letter for him to attend DI on 14/05/08(2nd chance). But the problem is suspension period for him from 28/04/08 until 14/05/08 already exceed 2 weeks, so is it this is breach of labour law? Actually this case we already report to police but we still have to follow the proper procedure to terminate him. Please advise. Thanks.

It does not matter because you are giving him a second change to attend the DI. At this stage you just wait for the outcome of the DI on 14/5. If he were found not guilty, fully salary would be restored for the entire period.
