    What should be done with a colleague who is unnecessarily creating trouble for others by misplacing their important files?

    I am working in a private firm. One of our colleagues has been unnecessarily creating trouble for the other employees lately by misplacing their important files related to their projects and then not even accepting his mistake. He has to be taught a lesson in some way or the other. What can be done in such a situation?

    Dear Aspirant,

    It is very bad habit of the concerned employee.This habit is causing troubles to many of the employees.So the matter must be reported to the the manager in writing.Immediate steps are required to be taken.Demand his transfer from your wing to others.If no action is taken,submit in writing to the manager,because of such bad habit,We may not be in a position to complete any office works for which We won't held any responsible.

    Hope immediate action will be taken against the concerned employee who may either be transferred to some where or he may be suspended from the service.

    Good luck.

    hello,
    catch him one day red handedly by your cams or other way of video recorders and show him the same and say him if he repeats then he will show that to your other colleagues and say him that if you shoe them then how it will be and teach him some words so that he should be ashamed of it.
    if he continues same then show that video to you boss.
    thank you...............

    Hello,

    I really wonder how can somebody be so irresponsible ? On top of that he does not accept mistake on his. Since all of you are aware of his nature, it is better not to give the responsibilities of keeping any important document with him. This means that somebody else has to take the responsibility on his behalf, at least it is better than giving it to him , and then misplace it. Even if he is given any document, a duplicate of it should be with someone else. This is will an effective solution to your problem. Now, on the point to teach him a lesson, you can give him a document to keep with him.At the same time, keep a duplicate of it with you. Then after a week or so, ask for it. He will inevitably misplace it and will try to avoid his responsibility. Then by showing him the copy with you, you can bring the charge against him.

    If you want to teach him a lesson than do same thing that he does with you and your colleagues that is hide his some important files and let him find it. When he will not find his files and important documents than he will automatically understand the seriousness of mistakes he is doing. He will understand that due to his irresponsible behaviour he has put many of his colleagues into trouble. If you think that he couldn't be made understand about his responsibilities than you all must go and talk to your boss about his acts. Your boss will automatically take appropriate action against him which will make him a reponsible emplyee.

    HiIf you aare having so much trouble with that particular employee, why you tolerating it.Tolerating him and his cheap deeds will only boost up his confidence to make some more trouble.Therefore, you need to frame a group who actually are troubled by him, write a commulative application to your senior official mentioned each and every deed of him. And then you should carry the application to the other members of the staff also to undergo as much signatures as you can.This will ignite a threat in his mind and then he will stop all the wrong deeds that hes been doing so far

    This type of mentality is most dangerous in the office where the number of persons are working together and more over this leads to problematic atmosphere. Due to this others may not concentrate their works too. when you have a evidence that the same person is creating this type of problems in the office, observe him carefully his nature of work and wait for the time, catch him and give him first severe warning in a pleasant manner not to repeat again. if everything went on well no problem. Otherwise please bring the matter to the concerned higher authorities in written with clear proof and request them to make an enquiry against him.He will have to take the appropriate action if it is proved as this has come under company disciplinary act.

    Just plan to fire him from the company if such things are practicing by the employee, first of all you need a proof to fire an employee and that will come to you when you try to get that.
    As you said that he misplace the files of the employee so just keep a spy camera over the desk of all the employees and never disclose this till the time he is not in the camera doing such things.
    Once he gets inside the camera then you should give the tape to the higher authorities and after that they will fire him immidiately as you have already given the strongest proof of the same.
    After this nobody in the organisation will try to do that with any of the employee.
    So think smartly , i know that its not easy but not impossible also, try to get your boss involved in this then you will get the full support.

    It is very sad to hear such unprofessionalism at work place. I feel that such irresponsible people should be boycotted from the team and should never be given any important duty or responsibility. Unite as a team and all of you should decide on catching the irresponsible colleague of yours red handed and then take him to your manager and punish him for his mischief. It is a grave matter and should be tackled seriously.

    It is quite undesirable practice of this concerned employee.This routine produces problems to help many of the employees.So the difficulty need to be described towards the this boss around writing.Immediate methods are required to be taken.Demand his or her transport through the side to help others.If no actions will be utilized,upload in writing towards the boss,mainly because for these undesirable routine,Most people probably are not competent to complete virtually any place of work performs for the purpose We cannot kept virtually any responsible.

    Wish instant actions is going to utilized contrary to the concerned employee exactly who may be utilized in some place else or maybe he or she may be dangling through the service.
    I actually speculate just how do a person be consequently irresponsible ? Additionally he does not agree to miscalculation about his. Given that all of you are sensitive to his or her nature, it is far better definitely not to provide this required holding virtually any vital report with him. Which means that some other person features for taking responsibility about his or her benefit, no less than it provides improvement over passing on to help your pet , and then misplace it. Whether or not they are provided virtually any report, a duplicate with it needs to be with a person else. This is certainly is going to a simple yet effective way to ones problem. At this moment, about the purpose to train your pet any lessons, you are able to give him any report and keep with him.At one time, maintain a duplicate than it with you. And then after the sometimes a week, want it. He / she will in the end misplace it and definitely will stay away from his or her responsibility. And then through exhibiting your pet this backup to you, you are able to bring this demand against him.
    In order to instruct your pet any lessons than do same task that will he does with you and the co-workers that may be hide his or her a few vital documents plus allow locate it. When he will not locate his or her documents plus vital paperwork than he will quickly fully grasp the seriousness of problems they are doing. He'll be aware that caused by his or her irresponsible behaviour bigger placed many of his or her co-workers straight into trouble. If you think he or she could hardly be manufactured fully grasp concerning his or her accountabilities than every person have to head out plus ingredient containing hormones . supervisor concerning his or her acts. Your boss is going to quickly bring correct actions against your pet which help your pet any reponsible emplyee.
    This sort of mind will be biggest at the office where by the sheer numbers of individuals tend to be working together and more around blocked a problem atmosphere. Because of this others would possibly not put emphasis its performs too. in case you have any research that will a similar body's producing this kind of difficulties at the office, observe your pet cautiously his or her nature of employment plus wait for the period, get your pet plus give him very first severe forewarning around a great method never to do it again again. in the event that every thing proceeded well no problem. Otherwise remember to bring the difficulty towards the concerned greater experts around prepared with distinct confirmation and also them to create an enquiry against him.He must bring the proper actions if it's turned out to be because this has arrived under firm disciplinary act.
