My subordinate is a drunkard.
December 3, 2017 10:34pm CST
One of my subordinate seems to be a heavy drinker as he always finds some of the other way to drink. He hides it from his parents so don't go to home after drinking and stays with his friends at night and goes home in the morning when he drinks at night. This is bad . Many times he has asked me to accompany him but I don't do that. I think I should inform his parents about his habit so that he may leave but then I think why should I do that. As he is unmarried let him enjoy his life he will leave it once he will get married. What do you say?

There's a commercial on TV here that says: Friends don't let friends drive drunk. My question to you would be - How would you feel if he were in an accident and killed and you didn't help him or say anything to his parents about his drinking? Just something to think about.
You may have the authority to tell his bad habit for he is your subordinate. He's under your care. I know for sure his parents have already known and noticed this. Use your head-subordinate relationship to help him before it's too late.

That is not your place to tell his family. If he knows enough to stay away from them. he can't be that bad. Or he would be exposed already. As long his work is fine is after hours business is of his own. Now when he starts staggering on the ob. Fire him.
