An employee is currently on suspension following a racist remark being repeated [see my previous posting]. We have today had a serious complaint from a customer in relation to a totally incorrect order being shipped by this employee. The employee was disciplined about her lack of quality control 2 months ago and given strict instructions to follow the procedures or face further disciplinary action.

I want to extend her period of suspension and ask her to attend one disciplinary to answer both allegations – the race issue and the quality control issue.

I cannot find anywhere that says I cannot do this. Please can someone let me know if I am wrong.
