    I work for SA Public Sector and I have been suspended without pay for misconduct, apparently because I have bail restrictions? Can they do this under employment law? I am using my annual leave and soon will have no money. Can I get an unemployment benefit until they make a decision on my future?

    An employer generally has no right to suspend you without pay unless authorised under a industrial instrument or a statutory authority.

    You may have a constructive dismissal claim, need to know more details.
