Restrictions on paid administrative leave?

Q. We hired an employee on a short-term arrangement, but then placed her on administrative leave after we received complaints about her. The leave will continue until the end of the term, and we are going to pay her while she is on leave. Is this permissible?

A. There is no law that prohibits an employer from paying somebody to stay home, which is what it sounds like what you are doing. If you are paying her, however, you might consider asking for a waiver-and-release agreement.
