The following list provides some examples of offences which are normally regarded as gross misconduct and which would be dealt with at Stage Three of the disciplinary procedure. This list is not exhaustive:
· Deliberate falsification of records
· Violence towards other persons or the use of insulting language or behaviour generally
· Assault on another person
· Deliberate damage to company property
· Incapability through alcohol or the use of illegal drugs
· Serious negligence causing unacceptable loss, damage or injury
· Serious act of insubordination
· Disclosure of confidential information
· Breach of any established rule or procedure laid down by the Company
· Refusal or failure to obey a lawful and reasonable instruction given in a proper manner by a member of management.
If you are accused of an act of gross misconduct, you may be suspended from work on full pay while the Company investigates the alleged offence. If on completion of the investigation and the full disciplinary procedure, the Employer is satisfied that gross misconduct has occurred, the result will normally be summary dismissal without notice but the Company reserves the right to impose any other sanction appropriate in particular circumstances.
