How does the Project Manager remove an employee?
The Project Manager has the right to instruct the Contractor to remove any employee which includes a Subcontractor’s employees.
The Project Manager has to provide reasons to the Contractor for his instruction to remove the employee but there is no restriction on those reasons. There is no obligation to behave reasonably and the action does not result in a compensation event.
The Contractor is required to arrange that after one day the employee has no further connection with the work included in this contract.
It means that if the employee has important papers to finish or some special knowledge about the contract, he gets one day’s grace. However, this one day does not mean that the employee does not have to stop work or leave immediately – that would be part of the Employer’s instruction – but only that he has one day to have no further connection with the work. If the Project Manager requires the immediate removal of the employee then the Contractor is obliged to obey.
