Webinar An in Depth Look at Gross Misconduct Dismissals - On-Demand Webinar


This webinar examines the way in which gross misconduct has been interpreted in a range of appellate cases, including a number of recent decisions. It will deal with questions such as:

  • Does the employer have a free hand in defining gross misconduct?
  • Can an employee be dismissed for conduct when he or she was not aware that it fell within the definition of gross misconduct ?
  • Does an act of gross misconduct mean that the employer is automatically entitled to dismiss?
  • Is an employer obliged to investigate all the lines of defence put forward by an employee accused of gross misconduct?
  • How does the investigation of allegations of criminal behaviour differ from other forms of misconduct?
  • Can conduct which is discovered after dismissal be relied on to support a decision to dismiss without notice?
  • Is preparing to compete with your employer necessarily gross misconduct?
  • Can the High Court intervene in the course of disciplinary proceedings for gross misconduct?
  • Can an employee claim constructive dismissal even if he or she was guilty of gross misconduct?
  • Is an employee obliged to disclose his or her acts of misconduct?
