Assignment 2: Ethics and Integrity at Work
There are a host of situations in the workplace that can be obvious breeches of ethics and integrity.
Suppose an employee constantly uses his or her work computer (and work time) to surf the Internet. Explain why you feel this is or is not an example of stealing from the organization. Give some other “nontraditional” examples of stealing from an organization. Explain why you believe the actions to be stealing.
Read this article and think about your opinion. Then consider other possible situations that may present a dilemma of ethics and integrity.
