Suspension should only be made if absolutely necessary and if linked to investigation for a gross misconduct. When verbally suspending it is crucial to follow this up in writing and you may want to consider asking for an email address so they receive written detail of the suspension as quickly as possible. Although specific allegations do not to be included in a suspension letter, the employee should be made aware of the type of misconduct being investigated e.g. fraud, violence towards a customer, drug taking on site, alleged abuse/neglect.
