Dear All,
Kindly advice as to what to do in a situation where a person is not in a position to leave his job and the Sr. Mgmt and other colleagues try to compel him to get into some unethical/illegal practises mostly for their own personal/professional benefits.

Hi kavita..
Such practices mostly happens in the direct Marketing companies.. to achieve their sales target or to reduce the pressures of Seniors..
But if its happening in other Industries with the consent of Senior Management, then it will come under the Decision.. as Senior Management is the decision maker..
Whereas if its happening at office level, then HR should must inform the same to higher management that such illegal/unethical practices are going on.. even it would be more better if you send the informations as Anonymous sender.. it will make them alert and definitely close observation will be taken by them and strict action shall be taken.. But in that information you must mention the drawbacks of those practices, so that they could take actions ASAP....
Anyways i might be wrong but it was my perception..

Hi Kavitha
You should act in such a way that all the misdeed of the Sr. Magmt shoulde reach to the ears of the CEO or owners of the compnay and if in any way if CEO.
You can also take help of office gossip. gossip has +ve and -ve side so use the +Ve side of the office gossip.

Hi Kavita,
I can understand your Position,,, as suggested by Vinay Sab, you can approach the CEO or Management...
Kindly do a complete study before approaching,,,, You have to cross verify about the CEO also,, because the senior mgmt might e even close to CEO or CEO might get some favour from them,,,

I would suggest decline to do these things politely but firmly. In such cases, your job may not be at risk. may be yr promotion /increment could be delayed. But do not talk much about it in gossip corridors and create sensation or cause embarrassment to higher-ups. Do what your gut feeling says
But remember someone is also watching that you have declined without causing embarrassment to any one else. They will help you in making-up for the loss (in case there is any). Only time will tell you. if you are convinced that you are right in not doing so, decline it politely (and firmly). Your stand will be valued in the organisation, if you continue to live upto yr values

Dear Kavita
Almost everyone comes across the dilemma you are confronted with. Do not compromise with your values and refuse to be a party with a thing / matter which is ethically not correct or unlawful. Explain firmly your convictions to any one who expects you to do otherwise.
If nothing works out as I have written above , be ready to blow the whistle. You may inform your MD / Chairman . You must have proofs in support of what you report to them otherwise it may boomerang at you. If nothing works out then change your job. It is important to work with an organization which has values. work ethics and ethical practices and where bosses do not pressure their subordinates to do unehtical things for their own vested interests.
Best of Luck.
