This is not a punishment at all. If you want real punishment? Demote him to the lowest level and force him to come on duty even if he resigns a thousand times. Strip him of all the privileges. Do this today and you would not have this issue again for a thousand years to come.

He has been rewarded not sacked.................being made OSD is that you get to do nothing with pay and benefits intact.
