- Tell someone right away. Even if you think that you can deal with the situation on your own, you should really tell someone what has happened so that they can help you to decide what your next move should be. If you don’t tell anyone then the stress of trying to deal with the problem on your own could be too much for you.
- Admit your mistake. If you know that you really did make a mistake and that it is going to have negative consequences, it is better that you admit fault now and deal with what happens, rather than waiting to be found out. There is always a chance that you won’t be found out, sure. But if you are you could lose your job purely because you kept quiet.
- Offer to make good. Even if you personally are not able to fix the mistake on your own, you may well be able to help out when fixing the problem. Offer to stay late. give up some of your wages or holiday pay, or whatever you can do to make good on the mistake you made.
