    Boss giving extra work which was not there in the job proposal

    I have been recently recruited in a private company. The company is flourishing well. But I am facing a problem. My boss is often giving me work that is allotted to employees of other posts. Such work was not mentioned in my job offer. How to raise voice against this injustice?

    Re: Boss giving extra work which was not there in the job proposal

    Dear Friend,
    Usually it is seen in most of the companies that only about 30% to 40% of the employees do most of the work and rest 60% to 70% employees do very less amount of work. There are reasons for it. Actually, the quality and amount of work done by every people vary a lot. So, boss likes to give more work to those employee who does the work in time and also does the work in the best manner possible.

    Your case also resembles to this. This is the reason your boss is giving you work that is allotted to other employees. There are both advantages and disadvantages of it. Advantage is that your boss will be very impresses of you and you will grow and learn much faster than others. Disadvantage is that you need to work hard.

    So, if you are comfortable with it, no issues. Else, you tell your boss that you are already overloaded with work and may not able to do anything extra. But talk in a firm but polite manner.

    All the best!!!
