I wrote an e-mail:
Attached is the Report, received a short while ago, submitted by Peter Pringle:
- What did his colleague tell you should be entered under section titled: Total Project Expenditure for the month? No total Project expenditure or Labor expenditure has been indicated at any time on the Peter Pringle report.
- Why does Peter's report have permanent staff shown under the labor force [as opposed to my instruction to include only casual labor]?
to my line manager regarding what I saw as a conflict between the instruction I had been given by him and the example that had been submitted to me by the client (Peter Pringle) as a template for my submission. My manager responded by e-mailing me
Let’s get one thing straight, you do not delegate to me(CLARIFY).
Was his response justifiable?
