Over Charged?

The imagination of some management knows no bounds.  We recently came across an employer who wanted to charge an employee with failing to obey instructions.

Obviously at a loss for the word ‘insubordination’, this creative employer charged the employee with ‘mutiny’ for the first offence, and the second charge, which the employer saw as more serious, was ‘gross mutiny’.  Reminds us of HMS Bounty.
