Member: Financial Adviser
Nature: Gross Insubordination
Outcome: Disciplinary Enquiry
– Not Guilty.
The employer alleged that the financial adviser was underperforming and failed to obey a reasonable and lawful instruction. At the disciplinary enquiry the employer relied on evidence of whatsapp messages and PRP documentation amongst others.
It was argued by the Union that the actions of the employee amounted to Insolence on the evidence. The Chairperson found that there was insufficient evidence to prove Gross Insubordination. Accordingly the employee was acquitted of all charges.
