    Action against peon who is resting at home while going to deliver office items in the post office

    I am a manager of a private firm. Recently it has come to my notice that the peon of our office is going to home and resting during official working hours while going to deliver office items in the post office as his house comes on the way. What action can be taken against him?

    Hi aspirant

    Everyone in your company from the lowest to the highest position should try to understand their responsibilities ands hould not break the rules and regulations of the company in this manner. You should definitely teach your peon a lesson and make him rrealise his mistake so that he never repeats such a thing again. He should be more responsible and should carry out his duties diligently. You should definitely talk to him in this regard as soon as possible.

    Call him to your cabin and tell him it has come to your notice that he is going to home and resting during the working hours while going to deliver items in the post office as his house comes in the way. Such kind of beghaviour will not be tolerated at all and he should see to it that he never repeats such a mistake again. He will definitely get a punishment for what he has done and then only he will come to know the gravity of his mistake.

    You can ask him to pay some fine or give him some days off with loss of pay. This will serve him right. Good luck and thanks

    dear friend

    call him and tell him all the mistakes he had done. tell him that this kind of behaviour will not be tolerated.
    give him a strict warning
    or tell him to pay some fine

    See there are many actions taken against him but it won't be right to take some strict actions.

    As now you have come to know that he is performing such acts it would be better if you tell him that you know that he practices such things and this is first

    and last warning to him and in future if repeated can even cause his termination.

    Taking any strict actions now will unnecessarily cause a new problem to you as though he is a peon these small works can become big problems in day to day

    working of the company.

    As though small these works cannot be left sometimes for even more than one day. And also it would be difficult for you to find a new peon in short period of

    time.

    So just give him a strict warning so that he doesn't repeat such acts again.

    Sir, being manager of a firm as you are noticed one of your peon when goes to delivery letters at the post office hegoes to his home for rest.Now what you are to do?

    Under the circumstances, sir you can call that peon and ask about his doings whether it is true or not.If he replies
    yes sir I go sometimes to my house as it is on the way of my house, just I go for 10 minutes or 5 minutes.Then sir, as a Manager you can ask him no you can not do that during the office hour you can not do so.There is complaint against you about this matter, from the next day you must not go to your house, if there is any complain I receive from any one I must take action against you.Give a letter that you will not do such irregularities again.

    Thank You,

    Dear Aspirant,

    To my mind it is not a big issue to mind for it.Since the home of the peon is on the way from your office to the post office,it is quite natural to have a glass of water in his home & take cup of tea.If he rests for a long time say for more than half an hr,then he may be warned not to do it.He should be given a memo in this regard.

    You can allow him orally to spend 15 minutes in his home.If he does not care of your directions,he may either be not given that particular work or he may be transferred to other unit.If it is not possible to take either of that steps mentioned above,arrange some body to follow him & catch him red handed.Get a written statement from the person who caught him red handed & give him some financial punishment.You can stop him yearly hike in salary temporarily.

    Hope he will be alright in his duty.

    Thanks & good luck.

    Hello Aspirant,

    In fact all the employees should strict to their respective duties & responsibilities,but it is not happening in practical.

    Since the peon's house is in between from your office & the post office,the peon uses his home to take rest,he is taking its advantage to have rest while on duty.

    It can be controlled either by not giving the particular job or by transferring elsewhere.

    If it is not possible either to transfer him or to make a substitute for that particular work,He should be asked for explanation & strict warning may be issued for not doing so.

    Good luck.
