My subordinate is a drunkard.

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?

How old is this man? If he gets the habit, he will continue to drink even after he marries and he will make a woman unhappy. I would inform his parents.

@Kingstoe Accepting this kind of habit is nothing good. Those who drive drunk can kill people, they beat their wives. Sorry but I do not accept them at all.

I think your decision is right, anyway he is single and old enough to know the better things he should do for himself. it will cause some misunderstanding between you too when you tell it to his parents.

I would fire him on the spot, that won't sit well with me if I'm the boss. He should be responsible in his actions.

If he gets married he might still drink.

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.

It's better to stay off from it. It's his life.. good or bad he is responsible. This generation people don't take it ..the way it should be ...

This person will ruin his life and the life of the girl he marries. He himself will fall in troubles. Better tell his parents soon and save him.

This is your employee? Maybe you should tell him he will lose his job if he doesn't get help. It's really sad.

I think you should tell his parents so that they can find a way of helping him now before he starts drinking too much. By the time he gets married he might be worse.
