newdawnfades is on a distinguished road
been asked to take on more work and not comfortable.

Hi all,

I am in the UK and just wondered where I stand with refusing to do more work outside of what I was employed to do.

I have been at my current company for over two years and have taken on additional duties already.

I have now asked to do work from a totally different department that also does not relate to my current job role.

I would love to help the company by doing this but feel like it will be overload for me if I am given anything else.

How do I go about saying "No" without rocking the boat?

My boss knows I have ADHD but nobody else in the company does and another manager has asked me to do this work.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Re: been asked to take on more work and not comfortable.

Get the support of your own manager in this, such that the "no" can come from him, rather than you.

Edit: p.s. I love your avatar and username!

Cheers,
Ian
