An employee has been suspended due to grave misconduct.
The company is giving incentives to employees who are perfect in attendance - no absences and tardiness.
Now, the employee asserted that he is entitled to the incentive since the suspension is not his choice.
What is a good explanation to the forfeiture of the incentive. The company policy is silent on suspension. It used however the word absent. Could I assert that the suspension in effect made him absent from work?
