What should I do if my employee’s suspension will take more than 1 week but the Commissioner for Labour hasn’t approved the extension?

Without the Commissioner for Labour’s approval, you must do one of the following:

  • Allow your employee to return to work and restore their full salary.
  • Place your employee on paid leave.

If you want to extend the suspension period beyond 1 week, you must submit an application to the Commissioner at least 3 working days before the end of the 1-week suspension.

Employers cannot extend the suspension period without approval from the Commissioner.
