Discharge for Off-Duty Misconduct Tyra Brown-Howell Strayer University HRM534 Employee and Labor Relations Professor Dr. J. A. Anderson, Sr. Discharge for Off-Duty Misconduct Explain the principle of Nexus and how it applies in this case of off-duty misconduct. Nexus is the connection between off-duty misconduct and how it affects employment (Holley, Jennings, Wolters, Mathis, & Jackson, 2010, p. 592). In determining whether or not there is a connection between the misconduct and employment, a number of questions must be answered. The arbitrator must decide whether or not the behavior will harm the employer’s reputation, if the behavior will prevent the employee from completing his/her job duties, if the behavior will directly affect products and/or production, and whether or not other employees will refuse or have difficulty working with the accused employee. In this case of off-duty misconduct, the arbitrator must determine if the alleged crimes of arson and burglary affected the employee’s ability to perform his job, if the crimes will have a detrimental effect on USPS’ service and reputation, and if the other employees refuse to work with the employee in question. Distinguish between arrests, indictments, and convictions.
