    Default Can My Former Employer Send Out a Company Wide Email About My Suspension

    My question involves labor and employment law for the state of: Iowa
    Can my employer send out a company wide email stating I resigned and including that I was coming off a 3 day unpaid suspension?

    Yes, but the email went to everyone, not just HR and payroll

    Nothing illegal about it.

    So employers can discuss employee discipline at will?

    They can, because there is nothing in the law preventing them from doing so.

    If it was true, they didn't do anything illegal. However, I'm not sure why it was necessary to do so. (still not illegal necessary or not)

    I think it's fairly shabby business practice, but sometimes I have no idea what some bosses are thinking!

    Noting that an employee was terminated in not uncommon, so folks no longer give you classified information

    Is it good business practice? No. There was no necessity for it.

    Is it legal? Yes. Few if any laws prohibit an employer from telling the truth, even if there is no necessity for it.
