Hi, thank you for your question, I will try to assist you with this.
Obviously, when working with vulnerable people great care must be taken by the authorities over any form of allegation of abuse (not that I am saying you have abused this man). Being suspended is not a disciplinary penalty and nor does it mean that your employer has already reached a decision. It is time to allow your employer to carry out a full investigation, so please do not panic.
I understand that facing the possibility of losing your job or being under investigation at work is an extremely worrying experience. To have the best chance of continuing your employment and your working relationship you need to be fully prepared. If you are a member of a trade union you should contact them for advice and to ask for a trade union representative to accompany you to any meetings with your employer. If not, then you need to ask that another employee (whom you trust) attends any meetings.
If you have not got a copy of the disciplinary procedure for the company (which is usually in the employee handbook) ask for a copy.
However, you need to wait for your employer to conclude their investigations and see what their stance is.
If you need any further information or want to ask any other questions, please do so.
