    boss

    Hi there,



    He's a man I work with. (Does it mean that the man is my boss?) How can I change this sentence meaning that he is my boss.

    Thanks
    pete

    Re: boss

    He is not your boss unless he supervises you. In that case, say he is your boss or your supervisor.

    Re: boss

    If he is in charge of the department, personnel and work, then Manager is another alternative word.

    If he is merely someone with whom you work in an office, who has no authority over you, then colleague or co-worker.
