    Reprimanded for reaching office late due to traffic problems

    I am working in an automobile company. From the past few days I reach my office late due to traffic problems. I try to get up as early as I can but still canít reach the office on time. Just yesterday my boss called me to his office and reprimanded me for the same leaving me with a warning. Please suggest me how to deal with such a situation?

    Hi aspirant

    I can definitely understand your situation and waht you are going through at this time. Its certainly not your fault that you reach your office late everyday and you are doing your best by getting up early every day. but even then if you cannot make it to your office on time then its certainly bad luck and nothing else.You should try to explain your boss this situation and let's hope that he tries to understand you.

    Go and personally speak to your boss and don't hesitate just because of your recent bitter experience with him. Tell him that your residence is very far away from your office and there is a lot of traffic in between now-a-days. You even get up earlier than before so that you can reach here on time but still you are not able to do so. You assure him that you have tried your best to get out of this problem but with no favourable results. So either he can provide you with temporary residence till the time the traffic settles down or give you a suggestion to overcome this problem.

    I am sure your boss will understand your problem as it is very genuine and thus you will be relieved of this stress. Good luck and Thanks

    Dear Aspirant,

    There are some purposes for having office time.All the public & employees are known about the office timings.so you should reach office in time.It is common to have traffic problems,but you can not be permitted to come late everyday due to this reason.Your boss seems kind that he has left your only after reprimanding you.He should have asked you show cause in writing.

    In order to avoid such problem,you should either fix your alarm of getting up so early as to reach your working place in time.You can calculate the journey time from your present residence to your working place.You can another one hr. in advance.Sleep yearly so that you don't have problem in getting up early as per your requirement.

    Second option is to shift your residence near to your working place so as to avoid traffic problem & to avoid other problems to reach your working place in time.

    Thanks & good luck.

    Ashok..

    Hello Friend,
    There is nothing much to suggest in this case if you start coming to the company in time then there will be no problem at all.you are saying that you are getting up early then how could you get late if you set out for company 30 mins earlier than usual time.if you are taking your bike then you need to explore different paths where the traffic is less hit.else if you are traveling by public transport then leave for the company early. it is always suggested for the working people to stay near by the office such that they wont loss more time in travel.you can think of the situation where you work for 8-9 hours in comany and then 2-3 hours to travel and return.so it will take up half a day.so you need to mange your time accordingly else it will hamper your job and career.
    Thank You.

    Dear if you have traffic problem in your way when you come to the office then first of all you should analyze in yourself that you are going to the office on time or not because the traffic does not take too much time to be cleared and if you leave your home at - 10 Am everyday then you should leave your home between - 9:15 to 9:30 so that you could reach at the office on time and will not face the warning again by the boss and if you takes really a long time on the way then you should go to your boss that please sir try to understand my problems and mention everything about your query that why do you gets late everyday in the office then i am sure he will understand otherwise you should leave home before 1 hour of the office premises time

    All the best

    Hello,

    If you come to office late on a regular basis then it is evident tha your boss is not going to appreciate it.You may be excused for a day or so,but not more than that.If traffic problem is so consistent that it makes you late everyday then you must leave your home another 30 mins earlier.If you have office starting from 9,then leave your home around 7:45 if the distance from your home is long.You have nothing to say as it is a mistake on your part.Try to be on time,otherwise your job will be in danger.

    Dear aspirant,
    If this problem is fix and you are on rented house then you can change your hose near by your office other wise you can find out short way to reach your office by timing or you can find another job near your hose so will not go through this kind of problem in future.
