Loss of Employment

Informal Resolution | 11 September 2020
Royal Cayman Islands Police Service (RCIPS)

The complainant was arrested by police at his place of employment. This ultimately resulted in loss of employment for the complainant. The complainant felt that the police did not display sufficient professionalism or sensitivity in dealing with this matter, the results of which were significant. He also believed that the police acted unlawfully in effecting an arrest at a place of employment.

Our investigators worked with the complainant and the officer involved. We met with the complainant several times and explained that the police have the discretion to arrest a person anywhere at any time. The officer assured the complainant that he never intended for the complainant to lose his job but that this was beyond the officer’s control. Both parties agreed to resolve this matter informally.
