Administrative leave

Recommended Posts

In a Volunteer Organization a member is accused of violating a rule and is disciplined for the violation. The accused member wishes to have a Trial Board. The member is suspended for 15 days. After requesting the Trial Board the member was placed on Administrative Leave pending the outcome of the Trial Board. so technically the member is not officially suspended, but due to the circumstances involved was placed on Administrative leave. Can this be done? If so where in Roberts Rules does it support this Administrative Leave. The member that violated the rule was placed on Administrative leave by the President. Thanks

The member that violated the rule was placed on Administrative leave by the President.

Once a trial is set, the member has all rights suspended (except for those rights which are trial related, of course).

I don't know what you mean, or what your president means, by "administrative leave".

• If "administrative leave" means "all rights, duties, responsibilities, are suspended" then that fits Robert's Rules.

• If "administrative leave" means "vacation" or "sabbatical", then you are really on your own.

So technically the member is not officially suspended, but due to the circumstances involved was placed on Administrative leave.

Huh?

How do you figure?

How does the above statement square with your statement below?

The member is suspended for 15 days.

Pretty much none of what you said has anything to do with the disciplinary procedures in RONR, 10th ed., Ch. XX. So your organization is either making stuff up on the fly, in which case you should read Ch. XX to find out how to do it right, or you have your own customized rules, and you'll need to look to your own rules to find your answer.
