An employee may be suspended pending a disciplinary enquiry this is to make sure that the employee does not intimidate potential witnesses or that the employee does not interfere in the investigation of the misconduct allegations. Some cases a suspension without a pay may be justified as a disciplinary sanction instead of dismissal. And if the employer decides to suspend an employee instead of dismissing him or her, the arbitrator or commissioner may well have to accept that sanction even though it appears to be very lenient.
