Trouble in Paradise? Handling Misconduct

Date | 8:00am Friday 21 May 2021

Presenter | Andrew Chakrabarty

“The workplace for some is a place of decorum. So how do we deal with those who are troublesome?”

Handling misconduct in the workplace is not easy irrespective of which side of the table you approach the matter from. There indeed is a significant difference between handling misconduct and appropriately handling misconduct. For some the question begins with ‘What classifies as misconduct’.

The answers to these questions may seem simple but misconduct proceedings are riddled with complexities which must be navigated carefully. Misconduct policies and following due process are what protect employers from the sharp edge of the law. We aim to unravel these complexities so that you may be well equipped to identify and handle misconduct in the workplace.
