Brief Answer:
PEP is not indicated for this situation

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Welcome once again to HCM.
HIV transmission is not possible through scratch injuries as, HIV cannot survive over the nail for more than few seconds. PEP is not necessary for you. Moreover your boss will not be a HIV positive individual. Not to worry.
