That's one of those vague terms that only gets truly defined in a lawsuit by the lawyers involved. In other words, what may be gross negligence to one party may just be negligence to another.
IANAL, but to me negligence would be an employee forgetting to lock the front door to the office at night. Gross negligence would be the same employee forgetting to lock the front door at night (after being reprimanded for doing the same thing a dozen time, having it pointed out in a performance report, and even being threatened with termination if it continued to happen), which resulted in someone walking off with $50K in computer equipment.
