    Boss trying to get details about about another colleague from me and threatening me that he will stop my promotion from happening if I do not provide him the details

    I am working with a private organization. My boss is asking me to spy on another colleague for personal reasons and threatening me for the same. He says that he will stop my promotion from happening if I do not divulge these details to him. I do not think this is ethical but I do not want to risk my promotion. Please suggest what should I do.

    Hello,


    Your boss has no respect for individual privacy. He has moral or ethical right to indulge in other's private life. Such a person should be punished immediately. I can understand your postition. You should never disclose your colleague personal detail at any cost. If that means you have to leave your present company then be it. You should never compromise your ethics and in the mean time you should tell your colleague everthing so that he knows his boss very well. You should never think of promotion and have work experience and you can get good job in the market with it. Never bow down to pressure my friend.

    Bye,

    Hello Aspirant,

    Boss require some one get feed back of the activity going on in his/her absence in order to be careful for the team.You can do so,but should lie.If you pass any true news,it is nothing wrong in it,but if you purposely spoil the ear of your boss against some body,it is really not good.

    So in order to make your boss,you can pass the correct information to him/her other wise you will loose the faith of your boss which is not good for your career.You should tell any thing on his/her enquiry.if you loose this opportunity,some other colleague will use his opportunity to to be nearer to your boss & in that case you may be looser for many things.

    So use the opportunity & get benefited.

    Good luck.

    hello..

    this not unusual in private organization.because regularly they will check each and every employee's by any one the method.

    spy is always there is all companies it may be a different person, like workers, managers.

    your details are given by one of the your co worker.your manager tell to other spy worker what they told to you.

    so that you can tell these things about your colleague but try to protect yourself because of your promotion..

    but the mean time you also will work nicely then only you can get the promotions.

    thank you..
