My sister told me that she was informed by one of her supervisor that her other supervisor reported her to head office for breaking company rules that she was aware of.And she is in serious trouble and will probably get suspended. But it's been a week and nothing has happened. Does it take long to get fired or suspended if the higher ups get involved?

Depends on the employer. Some take a while, others fire quickly.

It can depend on the company and how serious the infraction was. It could be anytime from 1 minute after incident to three months later after a complete investigation is done...

Must not have been too bad if they let you back in the building and continue to do work.

I'd think there would be some investigation to get an accurate representation of the story before taking such drastic action as a suspension or firing.

Even if found to be true, depending on the rule she broke it can range from a verbal warning to firing.

I am surprised that a supervisor reported her to higher ups. Usually, the supervisor would handle things with staff that report to them.

Some are fired or let go on the first day. It does happen.

Wasn't there a TV show about this? Hidden cameras and new employees who tried to get fired as quickly as possible within certain rules?

Quickly or slow depending on the company and the supervisor staff.

I will say that it was bad judgement for her supervisor to inform her of this without a plan already in place. Supervisor may have had best intentions thinking of giving heads up but now sister is in an uncomfortable limbo.

She should be looking for another job so she doesn’t get caught without a job and no income. Unless she is planning on welfare or unemployment.

It could be a scare tactic.
