    Undue advantage of relationship with boss

    I work in a private company. There is a colleague of mine who is in a relationship with the boss. On account of that,she is taking undue advantage of it. She is taking frequent leaves and often goes for an outing with the boss. As a result all her work is assigned to me. How can I get rid of this extra work pressure?

    Hi aspirant

    It is really wrong on the part of your boss to overload you with work and to force you to do the work of someone else. Your boss should first take care of his responsibilities and should learn how to behave with his employees. Its ok that he is in relationship with one of your colleagues and is thus letting her take undue advantage of him but atleast he should have the sense of not assigning her work to someone else . He is just misusing his power and should definitely be taught a lesson.

    I think you should not sit quietly in this matter and take action soon. You go to his office and speak to him personally. Tell him that he is not doing the right thing by assigning you the work of one of the colleagues. It is unfair of him to overload you with excess work and to put unnecessary pressure on you. He should let her take undue advantage of him and see to it that she does her work by herself. You don't wantg him to overload you with extra work from now on otherwise you will be forced to tell everything to the higher authorities. You hope that he has got your point and thus will not misuse his power from now on.

    I am sure your boss will be ashamed of himself and will never dare to do such a thing again. Also your colleague will learn her lesson. Good luck

    Hello Friend,
    Yeah may be he is taking advantage of being friend with your boss and it usually happens in some cases/projects.but you can avoid as he is boss's friend so not only you but also all must be facing the same situation.so next time onwards whenever they ask you to take up his work tell them to send the work with proper handoff with reason for not completing and keeping manager,TL ,senior team members ...etc.this will be official track of his recklessness towards work so he will never give you any task on mail.and if he gives then every body will came to know how he is getting benefited due to his friendship with boss ,so eventually with all the proofs you can complain to the higher authority of your boss and he will take care of the issue.
    Thank You.
