Company Intend to Dismiss Employee Suspected for Drug Offence

Scenario

My superior asked for my opinion on their intention to dismiss an employee who has been detained by the authorities on the suspicion for Drug Offence. He has been detained for similar offence before but there is no prosecution and he was released thereafter.

What I did

This does not justify for dismissal. The key word is “suspicion”, and he could be innocent. He did nothing wrong in the eyes of the law. I disagree on dismissing the employee. However, as there are concerns that he might have drugs in his possession and could pose danger to our client’s customers, I would suggest transferring him out to another suitable area till he has been cleared by the authorities.

If it was you, what will you do?
