In the recent decision in Agoreyo v London Borough of Lambeth, the High Court held that the suspension of a teacher was a "knee-jerk" reaction and in breach of the implied term of trust and confidence between the employer and employee. Nicky Green, professional support lawyer at Capsticks, explains why this case is an important reminder of the steps an employer should take before deciding whether or not to suspend an employee. Nicky also discusses the process that an employer should follow when it decides that suspension is necessary and appropriate. Presenter Fiona Cuming is joined by Nicky Green.
