Employee Misconduct encompases a wide range of behaviours. These behaviors can be of a serious nature such as drug and alcohol use, falsifying documents, Violence and bullying through to less serious matters such as rudeness and disobedience. Often misconduct matters are handled in-house, however after initial attempts to curb the behaviour the next step is to involve specialist help.
Counterproductive work behaviors have several underlying causes such as low satisfaction, a lack of organizational commitment, or conflicts with supervisors or other employees. If left unchecked misconduct can have a serious impact on profitability, efficiency and workplace harmony.
Investigating misconduct is an area requiring factual investigation and a good understanding of employment laws and precedents. If possible call Brassets before acting as sometimes investigations can be compromised by inhouse investigations that can hamper a quick resolution.
