As far as possible you should avoid publishing it in the newspaper by advising him to accept the show cause sending the message through his some friends cautioning that if the letter is returned, the charges will be published in the news paper thereby the entire people will come to know about the charges etc against him. Normally, this will make him to accept the post. Therefore, you may send at least three letters before publishing it in the news papers
Suspension without Pay: This is normally the next stage in progressive discipline after written warning(s)
Suspension typically prevents work for a number of working days, as specified in the letter, and pay is docked accordingly.
Length of a suspension without pay will be influenced by policy or contract requirements.
Reduction of Pay within a Class: This alternative is normally used when you do not wish to remove the employee from the work site, but serious discipline is appropriate. It is most appropriately used in lieu of suspension without pay, in cases of chronic absenteeism or tardiness.
The reduction of pay is for a specific period of time, related to the seriousness of the performance discrepancy or work rule violation, and noted in the letter.The disciplinary letter will incorporate the same elements included in a suspension letter.You may have to issue a letter of intent similar to that used in cases of suspension. Consult your L/ER Analyst on the procedure.
Demotion to a Lower Classification: This action involves movement of an employee to a lower level position, and may be temporary or permanent.
Dismissal: This alternative is normally selected after performance counseling and progressive discipline have failed to get the employee's attention to the problem.

Welcome to this open forum of knowledge sharing and thank you for your first participation in discussion on this forum.
Your first contribution is copy paste. But one thing is very appreciable that you have given the source of it, sincerely.
It would have been appreciated more if you would have confirmed its relevance to current context and that too, when any senior member and super moderator answers to the query and the given answer is appropriate one. Your copy paste matter has no relevance to Indian context.
My intention is not to demotivate you but to give learning lesson No.1, that is : when any member gives correct answer, appreciate it and write only value added to it if any. I do it.
In fact I was to vote to remove your post but when I noticed it is your first post, I decided to write all this.
Coming to the topic under discussion , if the employee refuses to accept show cause notice in person or by mail the same can be pasted on the entrance of his house and deemed to be delivered.
