Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
Hi and welcome to JA. Ray here to help you today.Please bear with me a few moments while I review your question, conduct and prepare your response.
So let me understand did one employee allegedly assault another one??
So you have right here to fire any employee with or without cause, they are at will.You could suspend them without pay until the police resolve it, usually they quit and go elsewhere.These are the options for the alleged employee suspect as I see it.Suspension here would protect you and they likely decide to quit and move on.
I appreciate the chance to help you tonight.Thanks again.
I am talking suspension here or terminate the employee suspect not the complainant.
No you can try and schedule them at different days and times.That would also resolve the problem.One of them may quit here soon anyway.
You aren't obligated to investigate.You can tell them both you will schedule them at different dates to avoid problems.Thats reasonable to do so.Thanks.
I appreciate the chance to help you.Thanks again.
