400.58 Suspension

Employees will perform their assigned job, respect and follow Board policy and obey the law. The Superintendent/designee is authorized to suspend an employee with or without pay pending Board action on a discharge or during investigation of charges against the employee or for disciplinary purposes. It is within the discretion of the Superintendent/designee to suspend an employee with or without pay.

Pursuant to Iowa law, any employee suspended with pay as part of an investigation that is ultimately terminated for criminal conduct, will be required to reimburse the district.

In the event of a suspension, due process will be followed.
