A teacher found guilty of sexual misconduct relating to the job will never be able to work in a public school in South Africa again, under new employment rules from the department of basic education. Business Insider reports that those involved in bribery, though, will be able to return to state employment after five years, and some type of property crimes will see significantly shorter bans. State schools and provincial departments have no leeway under the rules, and the severity of misconduct makes no difference. The effect is that an educator dismissed after threatening to assault a colleague, for example, will be banned for five years, even if the criminal justice system does not find the threat to be worthy of jail time.
