These questions are being answered by Learn HR, a market leader in the provision of HR and payroll training and nationally-recognised professional qualifications.

Question:

"When does misconduct become gross misconduct?"

HR tip:

Gross misconduct is any action that strikes at the heart of the employment relationship and makes its continuation impracticable. You should give examples in your list of rules such as fighting, fiddling expenses, sexual or racial harassment. Emphasise to your people that these are examples only and you will treat as gross misconduct anything that matches up to them in gravity.
