Hi Guys- hoping some of the labour fundies can help me out....
We have employed someone to help in our accounts department and it has since come out that she has been disclosing and discussing the salaries of certain staff members. Now obviously staff can discuss their salaries but the accounts people have no right (I would think) to disclose the salaries of any other staff member.
To me this is a serious offence and am wondering what the best disciplinary procedure is. I have only really dealt with poor performance, etc before so this a bit of a new one to me. Would it be breach of contract (we do have a confidentiality clause in our LOA) and it is serious enough to go straight to a first written warning?
Paging through our labour manual but it's all so circumstantial... any professional advice would be GREATLY appreciated!
