It is no longer a question today that in many cases employees find themselves in a situation where either they or their environment believe that they have committed a misdemeanor or sin at work. The perception of sin can depend on a number of factors, such as the particular organizational culture, management, employee preferences, the degree of trust in the organization, and so on. There are cases where we judge the same sin differently, making the severity and extent of the penalties involved vary. The present study examines workplace offenses and subsequent employer penalties and their impact. The researchers did not focus on illegal acts, but on those that violate moral standards or affect an employee's professional development and ability to advance in the workplace. The analysis made a distinction between misdemeanors that came to light and those that did not. The test results confirmed the following. The employees are more critical of their own faults than the employer, and this is especially true of moral faults. People experience sin and punishment differently by gender and age.
