IFATCA Policy is:
When an accident or incident is alleged to have occurred where the actions of an Air Traffic Controller may have had a bearing, the Controller shall have the right to be exempted from control duties until he is physically and psychologically fit again. The removal is without prejudice, and is non-disciplinary.
A Controller thus exempted or removed shall not suffer loss of pay during any period in any way associated with the investigation of an incident / accident.
