The most frequent reason for firing a worker is misconduct, which refers to improper behaviour at work that has to do with morality, discipline, and obligations. Gross misconduct can take many different forms, from offences that endanger the employer's business operations to offences that endanger the safety and welfare of the employees. This includes offences like workplace immorality, arrogance and insubordination, criminal activity, or any other behaviour that is incompatible with the relationship between an employer and employee.
Employers must adhere to the legal guidelines established by the courts regarding employment misbehaviour when dealing with employee misconduct. The wrongdoing must be sufficiently significant in order for a dismissal to be justified, according to courts.
• gives management, supervisors, and employees a useful reference manual on the many types of workplace misconduct, the proper disciplinary measures to be implemented, and whether or not the misconduct justifies dismissal.
• Covers the idea of misconduct, its categorization, and the specific types of gross misconduct, such as the abuse of drugs and alcohol, theft, dishonesty, harassment, and discrimination against coworkers, clients, or the employer. It also covers negligence, absenteeism, insubordination, leaking sensitive information, using the internet inappropriately, and conflicts of interest, among other things.
Along with academics, students, and others, the book has benefits for both the legal and non-legal working communities.
