    Manager taking the decision in favour of the wrong person

    I am working in a software company. Recently two of my colleagues were involved in a tussle and our manager heard their voices, and called them to his office. They both explained to him what happened and then he took a decision as to whose fault it was.But he took the wrong decision as I myself was present there and thus saw the whole fight. So how should I explain this to him as I donít want the wrong person to get punished?

    Hi aspirant

    You should definitely not let the wrong person get punished and it is really very good thinking on your part. You should definitely go and talk to your manager regarding this. You should not hesitate now as then the culprit will escape punishment and the wrong person will get punished. If you are an eyewitness to the whole incident then you should definitely brief the manager on the same and thus open his eyes.

    You should tell him that you have seen the whole fight with your eyes and thus you know who the culprit is. Actually, you are sorry to say, but the person whom he has punished is not the culprit and is innocent while the other person is the culprit. Thus you request him to change his decision so that the innocent person doesn't get punished and thus the right person gets the punishment. You hope that your information will be enough for him to decide this matter and thus take the right decision.

    I am sure that your manager will listen to you and thus will take the right decision and thus punish the right person. I hope justice is served in this case. Good luck

    Hi friend,
    I think it is quite justified to stand up for truth. Since you have witnessed the whole scene and seen the wrong pesron being punished by your manager, you must stand up for this injustice. You should be courageous to talk to your manager and explain him the whole scene that the person he is considering wrong and punishing is infact, the one who is not at fault .
    This will be a very good gesture and act of kindness . Your colleague will be really thankful to you . other people in the organisation will also applaud you for this act of bravery also as you will stand up for some one who is true. it will serve as an example for others to do the same in future.
    The maager will also be happy to note that the employees in the organisation are empathetic towards each other.
    Good luck

    Hello there !!

    remember one thing.
    never interfere to other peoples affair until and unless both of them knows you completely.
    by saying completely means that, they understand you.

    also, never give advice until and unless asked to you.
    especially in the workplace of the MNCs.ok??

    yes, it seems that you are a kind harted person but it don't mean that you will show your kindness in the workplace.
    since, you can show here only your professionalism and nothing else.

    so, i will suggest you not to interfere into their activities.

    hope i am clear to you.
    thanks for posting in EALP.

    don't drag yourself into controversy in this matter better mind your work, i am not ironical in my statement because if you intervene in this matter you will develop enemies with other employees as well who are close to the employee who were involved in the brawl.... yes you should report the matter to manager only when the manager has asked your take in the issue then its your social responsibility that you have your say in the matter.... if your not asked for any suggestions as witness to the fight in company.. please don't intervene... when time (proper time)comes reveal this matter to higher authorities... sometimes you never know manager may also have good relation... with the employee who was wrong... hope you understood my answer... bye

    Hey!
    I understand that you are in a dilemma and you want to make sure that the right person should not be held guilty. You need to raise your voice against this kind of injustice. You need to state the evidences in a manner that the manager believes that you are correct. He would then rectify the mistake that he committed. You should develop this art of convincing people and at this moment that is what has to be tested.

    You should resort to the written mode of communication and approach your manager that you want to have a word him regarding the tussle between your colleagues. You can tell him that it is urgent and you want to share your opinion with him because you witnessed the incident. I am sure that your boss will fix a time with you when he can meet you and discuss the incident with you.

    When you narrate the incident to your boss then be very careful while stating all the details. You should make sure that you first get all the details right in your mind. You should consider before hand what questions can your boss ask you and prepare the answers for the same before hand. You need to know it for a fact that now the responsibilty of helping your colleague who was not at fault rests on your shoulder.

    You need to know before hand that it will not be an easy task to convince your manager because it will be against his reputation to chnage the decision that he has taken already. You might even have to convince him a lot to allow you to meet him and discuss the whole thing. I am sure that you will have a tough time but since you have already decided to raise you voice against the wrong that is being done you will surely succeed.

    All the best for your future.

    Dear if you have a proof that the manager is going to punish another person of your company when he did not do any mistake at all and it's only because of another person so that you should first meet that person and tell him everything about the action of manager that what he is going to take against him and make him understand to be alert and keep some proofs with you that he did not do it and if any other have done then you must have the evidence against them that only they have done the mistake and manager is going to punish another body but if you do not have enough evidence then you should go to the manger with that person who is innocence before the manager comes to him and tell them everything about that what wrong he is going to do with him and i am sure that manager would understand your problem and you should say something in support of that person and if you have a good image in the office then manager may accept your argument and would find out the main person who have done the mistake in office

    All the best

    Dear Aspirant,

    Your thinking is very good.In fact the faulty person must be punished.For justice,you may talk to the manager in person with appointment.If you are given permission to talk on the matter,narrate the whole story & give your openion.See the response of the manager.If the manager agrees with your decision,then it is alright,otherwise you should see the reaction of the punished person.If he asks you for your decision & help,you can go ahead with him,otherwise you should not think much for it.If he asks for your help,you along with the concerned person should give in writing to the superior officer of that manager to look into the matter.If enquiry is set up & justice is done,it is alright,otherwise you should end the matter here itself.

    Thanks & good luck.

    Ashok..
