  • Misconduct

    Any kind of behaviour at work that is not acceptable.

    Employers should make it clear what types of behaviour are, and most importantly are not acceptable in the workplace. Some examples of misconduct are being late for work, misuse of computers, poor presentation and treating other employees badly.

    Certain types of unwanted behaviour are more serious than others (e.g. stealing or falsifying documents) and can be grounds for instant dismissal. Employers should know the difference between conduct and serious misconduct, and follow the correct disciplinary process based on the situation.
