Dear Rama

In the eyes of Law a person is innocent until the charges against him is proved. The employee is released on bail and the case is also pending before court against him;

So in this case;

If there is any provision of Suspension of an employee on the ground of retention on lockup by the Police for more than 48 hours in your company's Standing Order, then you should have suspended that employee as soon as you got the information but somehow the suspension has not been done in this case.

So in my opinion you should ;

1. Issue a suspension letter on back date.

2. Ask the incumbent employee to apply for cancellation of Suspension.

3. Cancel the suspension through a formal letter mentioning that if in future if charges are proved then he will be dismissed and engage him again.

4. If in future if charges are proved against him then these documents will help you to dismissed him..

I hope I am correct... Comments are expected in respect to my reply..

Thanks & regards..

Jawed Alam.
