Employee Misconduct is an aid to human resources mangers, industrial relations practitioners and other managers to understand what is, and what is not considered employee misconduct.
After a brief overview of the disciplinary process, each chapter examines a different type of misconduct including: sexual harassment, abuse of social media, conflict of interest, cheating, stealing and others
the principles relating to each type of misconduct are illustrated by summaries of relevant, recent industrial court awards. All chapters also offer some ideas on how to minimize the incidence of employee misconduct, particularly by introducing written policies which provide clarification to employees so that they understand the types of behavior which are not acceptable. The contents of this book are up to date and include reference to the 2019 amendments to the Industrial Relation Act
