Policies and Procedures in Dealing With Employees Who Have Been Charged With Crimes

Understand what you can and can't do when one of your employees has been charged with a crime.

One of the most perplexing problems that can confront an employer arises after the employer discovers that one of its employees has been arrested and charged with a crime. Under our legal system, the familiar mantra is that an arrested person is innocent until proven guilty. So, what can you do to address situations where an employee has been arrested, or has been charged, or incarcerated for a crime but has not yet been convicted? Because more and more employers are finding themselves faced with this dilemma, this topic will include a discussion on the legal limits on what you can do when faced with this problem and will also provide useful guidelines on how best to craft workplace policies and procedures to best prepare yourself to address such situations.
