Meaning & Definition

Gross Misconduct

Gross misconduct refers to an employee's negative behavior or action so serious that it calls for the employee's summary dismissal without the usual contractual obligations of a notice period. Often mistaken, summary dismissal does not mean immediate dismissal. It requires employers to follow certain dismissal procedures even if the employee was caught in action. The best practice is the suspension of the employee so that investigation can take place.
