Answer 1



Dear Sir/madam,

The ORDER of suspension can very well be challenged before the Central administrative tribunal (CAT) for the quashing of the same.

Section 10-A of the Industrial Employment (Standing Orders) Act, 1946 gives the employee a right to file a suit before the labour court.

Time limitation depends upon the date of the ORDER of supension issued. As per law, it is 90 days from the issuance of such an order. Commenting upon the chances of getting it quashed cannot be determined without knowing the actual facts and circumstances in the matter and the reasoning documents supporting it.

Precautions to be kept in mind are :- it is duly signed and contains the justified reasons of doing so, in wake of the conditions mentioned in the appointment letter and/or the MANUAL (that lays down the guidelines of duty).
