    If I found out one of my staff members did that I would give them an official warning and make them re-do their fraud and ethics training. I would like to sack them from the get-go but that would probably involve too much paperwork.

    Hmm this thread has taken a killjoy pill. Maybe someone missed the memo about no judgment

    I apologise. In order to prevent de-railing this thread further I might start a separate thread entitled "unethical stuff your staff/colleagues do that you would like to give them the sack for."

    Ah gee... This was just supposed to be a fun little thread. Just please give the sarcastic jibes and the judgemental comments a rest? It won't change the outcome of events that already happened.

    ETA because I didn't mean to be so dismissive - also, it was never intended to be solely a joke thread. It's called a confessional for a reason - a safe place to talk about things you have done or know about that you might not feel great about.

    The only workplace shenanigans I will react badly to are grand scale fraud and embezzlement, covering up murder/manslaughter, or knowingly and regularly befouling the only staff toilet (as my workmates seem to delight in) :-)

    For *almost* everything else there just isn't enough context. I do personal printing at times because I've never been told that I'm not to. Don't know where that fits on the 'ethics continuum' (and it is a continuum), but in others' workplaces it may be totally forbidden so the naughtiness of it is greater...

    -Our boss used to get the work placement student to make all of the labels for the staff’s children before school went back at the start of each year (before I had kids)
    -I let my ds photocopy his hands at my work
    -I never eat the biscuits at work and on a Friday my boss lets me take a ‘special biscuit’ home for dd for her after daycare treat.
    -I once took home a small whiteboard knowing it was going to be chucked out but I didn’t ask because the boss would have made me pay for it and pocketed the money- not his business but a NFP.
    -When I was 15 and working as a cleaner pt in a school, I said I was going to a ‘union meeting’ but opted to go home instead.

    I think any boss that frowned upon this would be pretty unfair and unpopular.

    by the same token, if someone is a slacker in work hours, then they don't really deserve to be taking additional work time up to attend to personal stuff.

    it all depends entirely on the work ethic of the employee and the kind of job they do obviously.
    I completely agree.

    My disagreement was with the phrase you used, as (as has been said, by you and others), it depends on the type of work, employer, etc.

    I once photocopied my hand at work, and it printed about 120 of them... turns out the person before me had printed off a document for uni and not changed the printer back.

    I used 'my hands' to make a Christmas Tree with the kids (was working in a childcare) and incorporated 'friendship week' into it.

    The other person was put on notice for personal printing... I did confess to my boss that my 'Friendship Tree' was the result of an accident. He thanked me for being honest, and said they don't fire people over single copies (which was my intention) as it's a long day and sometimes people need to do stuff.
    But if it's a large document, or a regular thing, you need permission (password protected computer, and a separate password will allow accounts to write off the extra copying), and the other employee had been doing it for a while and not said anything.

    She tried to plead ignorance, but there were signs everywhere on the copier, and wall, and it was brought up in training at least 4 times.

    The problem is, one person's fun, is another person's source of offence.
    I once had 3 staff members fired for accessing my personal details for their entertainment... It's one thing to find out by accident, or through your regular job, and another to knowingly do it "for fun".
