    Thanks.
    Welcome to the forum.

    It might depend on what sort of unfair behaviour the person exhibits. Can you give us an example?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    That person is called lucky. He's not being unfair. His employer might be behaving unfairly.

    If the employer is related to the employee, the employer could be exhibiting nepotism.

    I am not a teacher.

    Someone who seems to get everything they want without working can be referred to as a "golden child." This phrase is used for adults as well, not just for children.
