Seven things every employer needs to know about insubordination and gross insubordination

by , 05 September 2014
Insubordination is when your employee doesn't obey a direct and specific order from you (his manager.) Gross insubordination, on the other hand, is your employee's deliberate defiance of your authority over him.

What's unfortunate is most employers end up on the losing side of the CCMA because they don't know how to deal with these two offences in a legal manner.

The good news is you can avoid making the same mistake and it's all thanks to our labour experts.

Today, they reveal seven things they believe every employer must know about insubordination and gross insubordination. They're confident this information will help you discipline your employees in a manner that won't land you at the CCMA.


When it comes to insubordination and gross insubordination, you must know these seven things

#1: Insubordination is less serious compared to gross insubordination.

#2: This is the process you should follow to discipline an employee for insubordination.

#3: You can't charge your employee with insubordination in these four instances.

#4: You can dismiss an employee who's guilty of gross insubordination.

#5: Do THIS before you decide to dismiss your employee for gross insubordination.

#6: Don't charge your employee with gross insubordination until you've considered these three factors.

#7: If you've charged your employee with gross insubordination, you must take into account aggravating factors.

There you have it. Knowing these seven crucial things will help you discipline your employees in manner that won't land you at the CCMA. We also recommend you use this free checklist, it contains a breakdown of how to discipline employees for insolence, insubordination and gross insubordination.
