Hello my name is ***** ***** I am happy to help you today. How long has your brother in law worked there for?
Does he think he is being treated like this because of his nationality?
Ok thanks, ***** ***** employer is not in breach of the law by suspending an employee who they think may have been stealing meat in the event that an allegation has been made by another employee. In those circumstances the employer may suspend the employee pending an investigation into the allegation. Any investigation should be done as quickly as possible and should involve interviewing your brother in law. If after the investigation the employer still believes that your brother in law may have done this then he can be invited to a disciplinary meeting to discuss the allegation. If the employer has 'reasonable belief' that he has been stealing then the employer is entitled to dismiss with immediate effect.
If your brother in law thinks that he has been framed or treated in a discriminatory manner by the employer then he may raise a grievance during the course of the disciplinary process. The employer must hear the grievance.
If you have any further specific questions about this please do ask. If I have answered your question I would be grateful if you would take the time to rate my answer. Thank you and all the bes.t
