    Some workers may not understand what is inappropiriate behaviours because they see what others participate in and determine that is acceptable. A Code of Conduct or other internal documents that prescribe what is and what is not acceptable may have been presented in such a way that an individual has not been able to discuss their personal understanding compared to organisational expectations.

    In some case, workers may have attended internal training or have completed a self paced training package but were not provided with an opportunity to discuss and share with others others what is meant by inappropriate behaviour or conduct. Whilst it might not be possible to be prescritive in terms of all forms of behaviours of conduct, it is important to provid workers with an opportunity to at least ask questions to clarifty their understanding.
