What is insolence in the workplace?
insolence is derisive, contemptuous or abusive language or conduct, perhaps expressed in a confrontational attitude, directed by an employee toward the employer. ... Disagreeing with the employer, even in the presence of other employees or outsiders, does not necessarily constitute insubordination.
