Employment Misconduct (E-book)
Employment Misconduct (E-book) By Ashgar Ali Ali Mohamed, Farheen Baig Sardar Baig
|Author||Ashgar Ali Ali Mohamed, Faeheen Baig Sardar Baig|
Misconduct, the most common ground for dismissal, is related to an employee’s unacceptable behaviour in the workplace that relates to duty, discipline and immorality. Gross misconduct can take many forms, ranging from offences which jeopardise the functioning of the employer’s business to the safety and well-being of the employees. This includes offences such as immorality at the workplace, insolence and insubordination, criminal conduct, or any other conduct inconsistent with the relationship of an employer and employee.
In dealing with employee misconduct, employers must heed to the legal framework set out by the courts governing the employment misconduct. Courts have consistently held that in order to justify a dismissal, the misconduct must be sufficiently serious.
• Provides a good reference guide to management, supervisors and staff on various forms of misconduct in the workplace, the appropriate disciplinary action to be taken and whether or not the misconduct warrants a dismissal.
• Encompasses the concept of misconduct, its classification and the specific categories of gross misconduct namely, misuse of drugs and alcohol, theft, dishonesty, harassment and discrimination towards other employees, customers or the employer, negligence, absenteeism, insubordination, leaking confidential information, internet abuse and conflict of interest, among others.
The book benefits the legal and non-legal working community along with academicians, students and others.
