Dear Mr. Employee:
Subject: Temporary Assignment to Work at a Different Location
Effective immediately, you are temporarily assigned to work at home pending an investigation into alleged misconduct on your part. You are directed to remain at your home between the work hours of 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, with a one hour meal break from noon to 1:00 p.m. during which you are at liberty to leave your residence. You are directed to be available to be reached by telephone during the hours of 8:00 a.m. to noon and 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. If you are unable to be reached by telephone during those hours while on this assignment, the time that you are unavailable will be considered Absence without Leave (AWOL) and disciplinary action will be taken.
You will remain in this status until the investigation is completed, at which time you will be contacted with further directions. While you are on this assignment, you will continue to receive your normal pay and benefits.
Should you wish to conduct personal business away from your home or attend a medical appointment during the period you are assigned to work at home, please call me to let me know the day and hours to code to vacation or sick leave, as appropriate.
You are further directed not to appear at or call the department, and you are not to access the computer system while on this temporary assignment. Should you need to retrieve any personal belongings from the office, you are to call either me at (phone #) to arrange for any personal items to be sent to you.
