How to Handle Travel Pay Legally

How to Handle Travel Pay Legally

Understand what you can and can’t do when one of your employees has been charged with a crime. Make sure you’re aware of the legal limitations you’re faced with. One of the most perplexing problems that can confront an employer arises after the employer discovers that one of its employees has been arrested and charged with a crime. Under our legal system, the familiar mantra is that an arrested person is innocent until proven guilty. So, what can you do to address situations where an employee has been arrested, or has been charged, or incarcerated for a crime but has not yet been convicted? For example, can an employer fire such an employee before any charges have been the subject of a formal trial? Alternatively, can the employee be suspended for such an offense and if so, is it justifiable to do so with or without pay? Because more and more employers are finding themselves faced with this dilemma, this topic will include a discussion on the legal limits on what you can do when faced with this problem and will also provide useful guidelines on how best to craft workplace policies and procedures to best prepare yourself to address such situations.

Learning Objectives
