Instances of insubordination can cause conflicts in your workplace. This concept refers to any employee who disrespects or intentionally disobeys authority figures and this type of behavior may lead to consequences to the employee. Understanding what constitutes insubordination and how to address this issue can help managers maintain a positive, productive work environment.
