Abstract

Even with the abundance of misbehaviour definitions existing in the literature, there still appears to be a void when it comes to describing employee misbehaviours that are judged by the employer to be unsuitable and deserving some form of disciplinary response. This article considers current definitions of misbehaviour with a view to framing a definition for reprimandable offences: a concept suitable for examining misbehaviour from an employer's disciplinary viewpoint.
