I am a personal assistant to CEO of a company. That is my job designation and that is what I get paid for. However because I am also skilled in accounting and payroll I am often assigned such duties. Recently I made some errors in bookkeeping that resulted in a huge loss to the company. Now there are rumours that I will be fired. I even hear that i will be asked to pay for the loss. The fact still remains that i was doing the bookkeeping outside my job designation for which I earned no extra income. I am really scared.
