    Tell me some words that can be used in the following situation

    When we are asked for a thing which was occured before our appoinment
    (ex : some concept papers which was prepared by the previous employee presently not in the desk)

    when employer asks and put the responsibility of missed things to me
    (for example When employer say that you are the responsible person to make sure everything is here)

    thanks a lot

    How about:

    I am afraid that these papers are not in my desk because they were prepared before my time here by a previous employee. As these papers have never been in my possession, it is someone else's responsibility if they have been mislaid.
