1) Sexual Harassment: Sexual harassment is bullying or coercion of a sexual nature, or the unwelcome or inappropriate promise of rewards in exchange for sexual favors. In most modern legal contexts, sexual harassment is illegal.


2) Employment discrimination: Generally, it occurs when an employee or job applicant is treated unfairly because of their race, gender, nationality, religion, age, disability, or familial status (pregnancy, specifically).


3) Erratic/aggressive driving that endangers others: In parking lots, or when carpooling with co-workers to your employment, or meetings. Unacceptable behavior to management.   


4)  Taking credit for someone else's work: Making others think that the work you submitted is entirely your own has become a leading cause for reprimand or even dismissal.


5) Mocking race, gender, age, disabilities, sexual orientation or religion: These were once commonplace, now no longer tolerated in the workplace.


6) People who behave aggressively or who bully others: Bullying can take place in many forms, but a crackdown on such practices have revealed it is more common that you'd think.


7) Littering/keeping an untidy workspace: Unsanitary conditions and an overall messy workspace or leaving trash behind in the breakroom has become a focus for many employers.


8) Misusing handicapped privileges: Using either a handicapped parking spot or restroom is a major error.


9) Smoking in nonsmoking places or smoking in front of nonsmokers without asking: For most places of employment, smoking now has designated areas, or a smoke-free campus.


10) Using cellphones, text-messaging or checking social media in mid-conversation or during an appointment or meeting: Common sense says that this is just plain rude and disrespectful.
