Not unless it has an effect on how you or the other people invloved work.
#2
Depends what you do.
#3
getting court in a gay toilet will probably get you fired, lol.
#4
It depends. if you cheated on your wife no. if you robbed a bank then I think yeah, probably.
#5
depends on what type of work you do and what you work with , ie medicine nursing or police or so , wether out or in work you can be disciplined for not behaving appropriately and according too the regime/professional bodies you work under

What you been caught doing?


I ain't done nothing :-D The reason for posting the thread was this story.

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/education/7974446.stm

However, i wanted to keep things pretty general. I remember in school, being told that if you were caught smoking in the school holidays (not that i smoke) that you would be suspended. Which i always thought was harsh.

From the link...

"They were completely inappropriate for somebody who is a teacher," he said.

"They were absolutely not pornographic but do you want to see your teacher in that way? Probably not."

:shock: that's probably exactly how the boys wanted to see her:giggle:

In that case i'd say it's deserved........they have contractual obligations and that would definately affect the image of the school, upset the governors etc etc.

yes, catholic teachers have to sign a contract which basically gets you the sack if you do anything against the catholic churches teaching ie living in sin

although i have never known it bought into play, but i do know a lot of catholic teachers who have broken it! lol

just seen the link - yes that would break the Catholic Teachers Contract, not sure if it is covered in normal teachers contract, surely it would get her and her subject a bit of street cred

To throw a hypothetical situation into the ring.

You have an affair, outside of work, and your job is not effected. Now you have an affair, with the bosses wife, and are sacked. Do you have a case for unfair dismissal?

Usually their employment is based upon upholding the values of the Church, regardless of religion of background. I have however seen it used on a number of occasions.

If a teacher or someone in a similarly responsible educative position was caught pushing intolerant (e.g. racist) opinions outside work for example, then yes, s/he should be sacked. We don't need morons teaching our children.

This case is a little less severe (and she doesn't deserve to be sacked, just reprimanded), but teachers should still lead by example, and you have to ask whether this teacher is presenting an appropriate role-model for children. Personally, I don't think she is.

If she wants to objectify herself for cash, that's her choice. But teaching my daughter? No thank you.

It may depend if you can spell and use appropriate grammar.

What's a gay toilet by the way, does it look flamboyant? :oops:

Of course you do. What kind of question is that? At least try to present challenging and relevant hypotheticals. What's the comparison with the story in question..?
#19
its not exactly ideal having a model/supermodel as a teacher.

even 10yr olds have over imaginative minds nowadays
#20
are you talking about jacquie smith's hubby, using public money to download porn LOL

:-D Poor guy is just frustrated because his wife is too tired for action! :w00t:
#22
you'll find most households ... people have watched porn at some point in their lives. doesnt mean they're unfaithful -- i dont know about poor timney of course and his relationship with jacqui but what i object is use of public money -- can't even pay for his own porn!

I'd say it was a very reasonable question. If you had an affair with your boss' wife, then (on the assumption that he knows about it) the two of you would very likely not be able to work together. One of you has to go, if you had the affair, it should be you.

That said, the law would probably take the side of the person who had the affair.

On another point, does anyone really care.
#24
back to the question ...
"should something you do in your private life be used to sack you from work?"

for me it's straightforward, if it starts to affect your work then yes it is a problem.
eg office affair goes weird they break up there's a big drama then both will get a warning if their work is affected to the point of causing disturbance and stress to everyone else!

God i wish my PE teacher looked like that i may of went PE more, we had some old saggy lil

It's not a crime, BUT, would obviously affect your' relationship with your' boss I'd imagine?

Is your original post about affairs or crimes.

As a policeman robbing a bank whilst off duty should lose his job. :w00t:
#27
Not just a case of getting sacked.

In some proffessions eg medical / nursing the ones I know about, you might lose your job and also lose the right to work again because it might also go against professional rules, if severe enough.

There is a similar governing body for teachers. Cannot believe if you were not married (but had a partner) and taught in a Catholic school, that you could be sacked. How could they get away with that with all the employment legislation around...surely we are talking 30yrs ago?
#28
I remember my computing teacher, she was GORGEOUS. Always wearing low cut tops.

One day, she "fell out " of her bra whilst bending over to check someones work.


I still remember that day.....16 years on.
