What is Gross Misconduct?


An action by an employee that is so serious it triggers a termination of their employment contract and removes the need for the employer to give or pay notice. The type of termination is referred to as a ‘summary dismissal’. Gross misconduct could include actions such as theft, sexual or physical assault, or harassment.
