    Being asked to pay fine for the mistake of someone else

    I am working in a software company. Recently I and one of my colleagues were sent on a work tour. We had a common laptop which we were required to share between the two of us. But accidentally the screen of the laptop got damaged due to my colleague’s mistake although he didn’t do it on purpose. We came back yesterday and now my boss is asking only me to pay for the damages. I think my colleague is behind this. How to get out of this situation?

    Re: Being asked to pay fine for the mistake of someone else

    Hi friend,
    I think you should talk to your colleague first and ask him to own up his mistake in front of your boss if he was at fault because you should not be paying money for his mistake. Also, it is important to make your colleague understand at this point that he is responsible for the damages he causes to the organisation, else in the future also he might frame someone else for his mistake. Moreover, your boss should also enquire carefully and listen to each of your pleas before reaching to a conclusion that you should pay for the damage. I think if you honestly explain to your boss that it is not your mistake and that it was probably an accident, he may reconsider his decision to make you pay for this damage.
    Good Luck..

    Hi friend

    If your colleague is behind all this and if he is the one to misinform your boss about the damage being caused to the the laptop by you then you should certainly not sit quietly and certainly take some action in this regard. You should definitely go to your boss and clear your position with him otherwise this will be a bad mark on your reputation and is certainly not good for your future. So you should see to it that justice is done to you and that you don't get punished for the same.

    You should straightaway go to your boss's office before it is too late for you and prove your innocence. You should tell him that he has got some wrong idea that you have damaged the laptop that the company gave you on your work tour . You don't know who has misinformed him but this is certainly wrong that you have damaged the laptop. Actually the screen of the laptop got damaged accidentally by your colleague. He surely didn't do it on purpose but it was he and not you, who damaged the laptop. So he should be asked to pay the fine and not you. You hope that your manager will try and understand you and thus not punish you for something you haven't done. He can even call your colleague here and you are sure he will tell you the same.

    Now if your colleague has misinformed your boss then your boss will tell you about it. So then you can ask your boss to call him there now only and then he will be certaiinly caught . You can make him speak the truth and I am sure under pressure, he will have no choice but to speak the truth. In this way your boss will also realise his mistake and certainly apologize to you for that.

    In this you will be saved from being punished unjustly and your reputation will also be saved. In case your colleague does not accept his fault , then also you maintain your stance and ask your boss to conduct an inquiry into this matter. I am sure sooner or later your colleague will be forced to tell the truth and accept his fault.

    I hope you get justice. Good luck and Thanks
