If you are allowing the Suspended delinquent employee for duty then why you suspended, in case he works then are you paying the subsistence allowance or the salary or both.
If you have suspended an employee pending inquiry then you need to continue till the Domestic inquiry is completed, report submitted and the punishment cleared. If the punishment is other than termination then you need to allow him after the employee completes the punishment.
When there is no suspension then you will allow duty till completion of inquiry & the punishment is other than termination.
Allowed to join duty till completion of inquiry is not at all applicable once the employee is suspended. He is allowed to join duty on completion of inquiry & the punishment is other than termination.
Hope you are clear.

It is the prerogative of the company to suspend an employee pending enquiry if the misconduct which he has indulged in is so grave and serious as to keep him away from work reason being he may influence the witnesses or tamper with the evidence against him. During suspension pending enquiry, the company is required to pay subsistence allowance to the chargesheeted workman as per the Standing orders Act.
However if the suspension is withdrawn against the employee it will cast a burden on the company to prove as to why he was suspended in the first place. Withdrawing the suspension is the company's prerogative also, but if the case is put to judicial scrutiny, then some bias on the company's part may be inferred by the Authority.

When a person is more emotional, the first casualty would be his rationale. First and foremost, Suspension of an employee pending enquiry and its revocation after some time are mere administrative acts falling well within the discretion of the disciplinary authority in the wide spectrum of disciplinary proceedings.The delinquent employee can not question this on any grounds other than denial of subsistence allowance or its indefinite prolongation even after the close of the enquiry.
Second, the defects you are pointing out about the enquiry may serve as valid grounds of defense in a judicial appeal if you were punished based on such a defective enquiry. Even chances are there that the entire charges may be dropped altogether and the period of suspension undergone may be regularised as duty.
Therefore, let the employee rejoin duty and patiently await the final orders.
