Inappropriate activity in the workplace can be many forms. Verbal abuse of co-workers is considered inappropriate behavior. The impact of disruptive behavior can be quite damaging. Decreases in productivity, performance, employee commitment, and company reputation will affect the bottom line, as will increases in turnover costs.

Also, toxic behavior can spread like a virus. People who work around disruptive people may begin to behave differently and believe that the organization has a high tolerance for such misbehavior. Workplace bullying is also sometimes found in the workplace. Separating the person from the employees and the customers is the safest route.
