Misconduct and Gross Misconduct
What amounts to misconduct and gross misconduct can vary depending on, for example, your workplace or the type of work an employee is doing. Gross misconduct is conduct which is so serious that it usually (although not always) justifies dismissal without notice or pay in lieu of notice for a first offence. Less serious misconduct may justify disciplinary warnings; and may justify dismissal if the employee has active warnings on their record. You should give employees ‘advance warning’ of what you will view as misconduct and gross misconduct by explaining your standards of conduct in disciplinary and other policies and communicating these to all employees.#
