Meaning of Gross Misconduct?
Gross Misconduct stands for all the actions that result in immediate firing within the organization. These inappropriate and unacceptable behaviours are defined by the company itself and not by law. Its presence is crucial on one hand for the person who commits these, to know what are the definite boundaries within the workplace and to be aware of the consequences.
On the other hand, it’s also important for the ones who have to face these from others so they know they should report them and can feel secure.
Examples of Gross Misconduct
Examples of such behaviours are sexual harassment, racism, sexism, and other forms of misconduct.
