Examples of cases involving suspension at work
Following the last two episodes in which I covered suspending employees I have compiled some cases involving suspension at work to give you some examples of the facts and circumstances.
In this episode I will cover:
- Camden and Islington Mental Health and Social Care Trust v Atkinson UKEAT/0058/07

- Mezey v South West London & St George’s Mental Health Trust – Court of Appeal;
- Milne v The Link Asset & Security Company Limited – Employment Appeal Tribunal;
- Shipstone v Leicestershire County Council – Leicester Employment Tribunal.

- Seek advice about the particular circumstances, every case is different;
- Review the suspension checklist before suspending;
- Take care not to make snap decisions or judgments;
- Listen to the two earlier episodes on suspension here 85 and 86.
