On my responsibility. Under my responsibility.
What's the right preposition here?
I was not thinking on any particular context.
Maybe I allowed doing this on my responsibility.
My difficulty in answering the question is that I don't think I would use either, and without context I can't suggest a sensible alternative.
I see. Then, how should I say the following?
You can go home.
If somebody asks, you have the day off. Under / On my responsibility.
Thanks for your patience!
I realise that it is some time since this was asked, but would like to offer a suggestion anyway:
-On my say so.
However, in reality, I think that a rather longer sentence would probably be used:
-If anyone asks, I gave you permission to take the day off / I authorised it.
On my authority...under my authorization...both interchangeable..
Separate names with a comma.
