    Gross misconduct at work, help needed.


    0 Not allowed!
    Someone that I know, has handed in his notice today at a very well known company, and, they( the company) are not happy about it.
    In a meeting with his superiors, he has been told he is not allowed to tell any of his work colleagues that he has a new job and will be leaving after his notice period( also, an area of contention), on pain of instant dismissal for gross misconduct.
    Can his company do this?
    You be glad you be Sussex born!

      I'd tell everyone. Early dismissal with a new job to go to just means a bit of a holiday until then.

      well if he has told you, and people know who you are, and you've put it on a message board read by thousands around the area (and further afield), then he may as well get his coat anyhow.

      Grosa misconduct is behaviour that is so serious that it causes a serious breach of trust in the employee/employer relationship

      What constitutes this should be set out in employee handbook or contract of employment but generic examples are violence, dishonesty, gross insubordination or sabotage. It can also include misuse of corporate information, setting up a rival company

      From what youve written here it doesnt sound like any of these except gross insubordination but he should get a written explanation on what grounds theyre requesting this and why

      Temporary - East, Dyche, Barton, Boro
      Permanent - Dean, Challis, Moreton, Pardew, Bellotti, Stanley, Archer

      What does it say in his contract of employment? Unusual for a coy to act like this but there could be a good reason, eg share price sensitive info that needs proper and orderly communication
      never forget what Stanley, Archer and Bellotti did

      Unless he is removed from the workplace on 'gardening leave' with all communications with colleagues/clients/suppliers severed, this instruction is totally unreasonable as he will be in a situation where he will have to LIE to maintain this condition - which would then be deemed as another disciplinary offence! Inevitably, it will become obvious anyway.
      However, the company always holds the 'whip hand' as it holds the money due - so they will do what they want in the short term, instant dismissal during notice still meaning that most of the severance payment would be with-held. Would then have to fight via tribunal to prove unfairness (possibly wrongful) of dismissal to claim monies owed, plus hopefully some extra compensation.

      of course they cant ask that, and they've probably set themselves up for constructive dismissal if they tried. tell him he needs to have all meetings with HR present and minuted, i would venture his superiors will be told to pipe down.
