Can some-one be suspended for gross misconduct if they have (hurriedly) taken sick leave?

Sorry cannot give the gory details at the moment but will reveal all at some point.

If a person knows they are going to be found out for something they have done and goes 'on the sick' is their employer able to suspend them while the accusations are investigated?

I need to be armed with the correct procedures are I believe this has not been handled properly.

By the way the 'person' has badly hurt one of my family.

Your help and advice will be much appreciated.

I would have thought so, as the conduct still stands.

That's not an expert view though, hopefully something who know more will be along soon.

I really would appreciate some advice before we meet up with the employers. We are all in shock, the police and social services are involved too.
