Good morning!

I'm having a serious trouble with this sentence...

He will be dismissed if he/she has a punishable conduct
He will be dismissed if he/she commits a punishable conduct

Which one is correct? Is any of these correct?

Thanks! :D

    I'd say neither is correct: "A punishable conduct" doesn't sound idiomatic to me; neither does "to have conduct" or "to commit conduct".

    Are you talking about misconduct at work or a criminal offence outside work?

    I'm gonna turn the text around so that is a list and this way I don't have to use verbs and I'll use serious misconduct instead.
