    Should I obey my managerís orders to spy on my colleague?

    I am working in a private firm. Just few days back , my manager called me to his office. He told me that he wanted me to spy on one of my colleagues as he is suspicious of him being involved in a certain matter. I donít know whether I should do this or not. Please guide me in the right direction.

    See as you are an employee of the company and thus you have to do certain things sometimes that are not part of your work but due to orders of

    your higher authorities you have to do it. If it was a normal case than you should not do such things as this is companies matter and not yours but in

    this case as you are ordered by your boss as you have said than you have to follow the same.

    Alternatively if you don't want to do this or you cannot handle such work than it is better that you tell to your manager that you are not comfortable

    and confident in doing the job. But if he insists than you donot have any other option, also it is for the good of the company and possibly if you help

    your manager in finding the culprit than it is possible that it might benefit you in your future in the company.

    hi friend...

    Never spy other person if some one insists.As it is an order of your higher authority you cant say opposite to them.But you make them know that they are insisting an employee to do something which is wrong.So,first try to explain them that they are doing wrong.But try to explain in a gentle such that it doesn't hurt them.Reply that you can't do it to your collegue as he is one of your wellwisher.
    Thank you
