Question to Ask the Workplace Doctors about work dumped on one and others loafing:
I inherited my previous position from my boss, when she became my boss. We had both moved up one position. When we were in our previous posts she would always push work back to me. If palming off work was an Olympic sport she would be a gold medal winner. It was only when I took over her position I truly realised just how much work she had let build up. Certain items of work had not progressed for literally years. When we were both promoted my previous post was given to two people who worked it as a job share. Unfortunately, both were not motivated and could not cope with the work and so a lot of it was taken off them.
