It can be of two types. First one is occurring when the language used is clear but it suggests two or more possible meanings. Another one is that appear on the face of a document uncertain language has been used.

Job Role Ambiguity occurs when an individual does not understand the expectations and behaviors of their position in an organization. It can be due to the incomplete information, changes in system of an organization, or bad response from your manager.

Types of Job Role Ambiguity

They may do this because they are busy and don’t take the time to think about what information employees need to complete the job. It’s hard to complete that task because of incomplete information. But it may be risky to ask for guidance because the boss could become irritated. It causes the delay in submission of project.

If the boss is too busy to look at the project, he makes a discreet remark such as, “Thanks”.  A wondering employee is result of needs of boss from his work.
