Most of us err on the side of caution when it comes to banter with the boss – however, these cheeky office workers have no qualms with pranking their employers.

A hilarious new online gallery compiled by BoredPanda showcases the hilarious and occasionally strained relationship between employer and employee.

In many cases, good humoured bosses were able to see the funny side of their worker's pranks including one who insists on fancy dress for webcam meetings.

Occasionally managers indulge in pranks themselves, including one who attempted to sabotage a colleague's diet by presenting them with an enormous cake as a birthday gift.

However, some employers have found hilarious ways to get their own back for poor workmanship including one who trolled a hapless employee's fake sick note.
