Expert:  Ben Jones replied 4 years ago.
There is no maximum time limit on how long an employee should be suspended for but any period of suspension should not be unreasonably long, meaning it should only last for the time that the employer needs to investigate the matters. Just being left on suspension with no communication and for such a long time is likely to be unfair and you should certainly consider contacting the employer and challenging them on what is happening with this. Remind them that they need to keep you informed of the progress of the investigation and that they should not keep you on suspension for longer than is reasonably necessary.
