Employee misconduct can take many different forms. Types of misconduct can include:
Harassment. Harassment itself can be subdivided into various categories. Types include sexual harassment in the form of inappropriate comments, questions, or advances; physical harassment and assault; and verbal harassment from bosses or coworkers. Employee bullying, though categorized separately, frequently overlaps with harassment.
Asset Misuse & Theft. Theft can include simple theft of company property, as well as time theft while on the clock. Asset misuse includes acts such as using company funds and property for personal use or business transactions.
Substance Abuse. The abuse of drugs and alcohol can be grounds for dismissal. Even if the employee in question is abusing the substance off the clock, a private investigator can help you attain the proof you need to move forward.
Payroll Abuse. This could be an individual employee or even the payroll department itself falsifying pay or hours worked.
Insubordination. The legal definition of insubordination covers much more than plain rudeness. A qualified private investigator can help you handle insubordination cases professionally and delicately.
