Abuse of a corporate credit card: grounds for summary dismissal?

Among the basic obligations of employees vis-a-vis their employer is the obligation to behave such that their conduct in connection with the employment relationship causes no damage to the employer, to manage the tools and aids entrusted to them with proper care and diligence, and to protect the employer's property from damage, loss, destruction, and abuse. Where an employee violates these duties by engaging in a deliberate attack against the employer's property, the employer's trust in them will be fundamentally disturbed or even be lost altogether. Having said that, is it really permitted to summarily dismiss an employee on these grounds, even if the damage to the employer's property is relatively marginal?

But the labour market and apartment prices tell a different story. It is apparently about time that the economic policy take its foot off the pedal and start putting the brakes on. Limited reliance can be usually placed on fiscal policy, namely in the year when elections are to be held. So only the central bank remains. And it decided to intervene in early August, increasing interest rates for the first time since 2008.
