Jennings will miss eight matches for Leinster, starting with Saturday’s Heineken Cup trip to Brive and including the back-to-back European encounters with the Scarlets.
He will be available again for their Magners League game against Glasgow at the RDS on the second weekend of January.
The Jennings case is the first high-profile incident since the International Rugby Board vowed to clamp down on the “heinous” offence.
The IRB called for global consistency in how offenders were punished following a spate of notorious incidents, including Schalk Burger’s clash with Lions winger Luke Fitzgerald in the second Test.
The Lions felt Burger got off lightly with an eight-week suspension when Munster flanker Alan Quinlan was banned for 12 weeks for a clash with Leinster’s Leo Cullen in last season’s Heineken Cup semi-final.
