Gross Misconduct

Gross Misconduct is behaviour that is so serious as to justify your summary dismissal. What constitutes gross misconduct varies from employer to employer, and also depends on the type of work you do. Proven theft, fraud, physical violence, serious negligence or serious breach of health and safety regulations,  are all serious breaches of contractual terms which will lead to dismissal.
