Asking a security guard to help without the consent of the employers

Q: I stay in a complex which has a guard employed. If I occasionally ask him to carry my groceries and pay him for this, will this be permissible?

A: To use him for your personal work while he is in the employment of another company is impermissible. If you need to use him, you will need to obtain consent from his employers.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
