When the President determines that there exists strong and compelling evidence, the President may temporarily suspend with pay a faculty unit employee for reasons related to (a) the safety of persons or property, (b) the disruption of programs and/or operations, or (c) investigation for formal notice of disciplinary action.
The President shall notify the faculty unit employee in writing of the immediate effect of a temporary suspension, and whether the temporary suspension is related to (a) the safety of persons or property, (b) the disruption of programs and/or operations, or (c) an investigation for formal notice of disciplinary action.
The President shall notify the CFA whenever a faculty unit employee has been temporarily suspended, provided that the suspended faculty unit employee first consents to such notification to the CFA. Such notification shall take place within seven (7) days of the date the faculty unit employee is notified.
The President may terminate or extend a temporary suspension and shall so notify the faculty unit employee.
Unless earlier terminated by the President, a temporary suspension, including any extension of a temporary suspension, shall automatically terminate upon the service of formal notice of disciplinary action or thirty (30) days after its commencement, whichever first occurs. The thirty (30) day period may be extended for a specific period of time by mutual agreement of the President and the employee.
