    Is using for family connections to get a work done for my boss is a form of bribe?

    I am very disturbed as my colleague recently accused me of giving a bribe to my boss. All that I did was to use my family connections to get personal job done by my boss. I did it because I could, does it come under the bribe category?

    Hi friend

    What you did certainly does not come under the bribe category for sure and your colleague is certainly wrong when he says that. But you should have not misused your family connections with your boss to get yourself a job, you should have tried to get the job on your own calibre and then I am sure no one would have dared to accuse you of such a thing. So friend dont feel small if your colleague mentioned such a thing. Dont lose heart and rather try to face the situation bravely. Dont let yourself get disturbed in this manner and dont lose heart.

    I personally think that you should not have used your family connection in this manner to get this job and should have first tried to get it on your own accord but now as you have done it, there is certainly no looking back. But maybe you have taken as this step as you were in dire need of a job even after putting all your effort. And maybe anyone in your place would have done the same thing.

    But whatever you did, one thing is for sure that your colleague has no right to talk to you in this manner and blame you for taking the bribe. You should certainly not let him exploit you in this manner and tell him straight that you have not taken any bribe and that he should stop accusing you in this manner. Tell him to keep his mouth shut and thus not interfere in your work.

    I am sure after this interaction, he will never dare to interfere in your work again.This will teach him a good lesson and thus he will not accuse you in this way again. Also he will never dare to show such rude behaviour with anyone in his life. Good luck and Thanks

    Hello,
    it does not come under bribe category. as you haven not given anything to your boss for your work done. you have used your family connection for your personal work, so do not hamper yourself as it is not consider as bribe.

    Good luck

    Dear friend your colleague always annoy you as you are involved with family of company boss,and as and when needed you help that family.Under this situation you are to bear silently.Though it is never true that you give bribe to the boss for personnel job.So far my knowledge goes almost all bosses take this opportunity specially from the subordinate class they enjoy this facility.I think ministers to department head there are (chamcha)who carry order on behalf of Boss/department head/MLA/Minister etc,I think it is natural as the circumstances compel you to do/carry order of bosses.So, here according to my consideration you are not bribing instead I can say you carrying order of boss family only to get just due favour to save your service position intact.This is not your fault our social structure is in a position every hi,fi person has chamcha who is bound to work for very little help from the boss.

    Thank You,

    Dear Aspirant,

    You need not be disturbed for such common things.Most of the people like to critcise & blame others & try to get credit for themself.To my mind,you should not mind,instead,you should be sincere to do your works honestly.It is very common to introduce himself before others & give details about family background.This makes closeness between two concerned.You have done the same thing.Most of the people tries to bring close relation with the boss by means of referring their family background,locality,caste,educational institutes etc.

    You friend should not accuse you for this & if he is accusing you,just try to convince him otherwise if it is possible,you can ask him to do same thing for himself.

    Thanks.

    Ashok..

    Hello,

    Ethically speaking what you have done in order to get your job,is not acceptable.People use such influnces in order to get a job,but just give it a thought that would you have got it without taking such help?If you have been chosen only on the basis of your merit,then there would have been no issues at all.I will say it is not actual bribery ie.in terms of money,but I would say you have exercised undue influence in order to get your job.Using undue influence in any situation is not appreciable in any way.It will be better for you,if you dont continue with is argument as it may turn into something bad.Try to be honest in what ever you do.That will increase your inner strength and confidence.

    You probably did definitely doesn't come back beneath the bribe class needless to say and your colleague is definitely wrong once he says that. however you must haven't abused your family connections together with your boss to urge yourself employment, you must have tried to urge the task on your own calibre then i'm positive nobody would have dared to accuse you of such a factor. therefore friend dont feel little if your colleague mentioned such a factor. Dont lose heart and rather attempt to face matters courageously.
    Dont let yourself get disturbed during this manner and dont lose heart.

    I in person assume that you simply mustn't have used your family association during this manner to urge this job and will have initial tried to urge it on your own accord however currently as you have got done it, there's definitely no wanting back.

    However perhaps you have got taken as this step as you were in dire want of employment even once golf stroke all of your effort. and perhaps anyone in your house would have done an equivalent factor.

    However no matter you probably did, one factor is needless to say that your colleague has no right to speak to you during this manner and blame you for taking the bribe. ought to|you ought to|you must} never let him exploit you during this manner and tell him straight that you simply haven't taken any bribe which he should stop accusative you during this manner. Tell him to stay his mouth shut and therefore not interfere in your work.

    I'm positive once this interaction, he can ne'er dare to interfere in your work once more.This will teach him an honest lesson and therefore he won't accuse you during this means once more. conjointly he can ne'er dare to point out such rude behavior with anyone in his life.

    Your colleague perpetually get to you as you're attached family of company boss,and as and once required you facilitate that family.Under this example you're in touch wordlessly.

    Though it's ne'er true that you simply provide bribe to the boss for personnel job.
    So far my data goes the majority bosses take this chance specially from the subordinate category they relish this facility
    .I think ministers to head there are who carry order on behalf of Boss department head
    MLA/Minister etc,I think it's natural because the circumstances compel you to do carry order of bosses.

    So, here per my thought you're not bribing instead I will say you carrying order of boss family solely to urge simply due favor to save lots of your service position intact.
    This is not your fault our scheme is during a position each hi,fi person has chamcha World Health Organization is guaranteed to work for little or no facilitate from the boss.
