Homework Help: ethics

Posted by Gurv on Thursday, November 9, 2006 at 10:00pm.

A coworker calls you at 9 a.m. at work and asks for a favor. He is having trouble this morning and will be an hour late for work. He explains that he has already been late for work twice this month and that a third time will cost him four hours of pay. He asks you to stop by his cubicle, turn his computer on, and place some papers on his desk so that it appears that he is "in." You have worked on some small projects with this coworker and gone to lunch together. He seems nice enough and does his share of the work, but you are not sure what you tell him. What would you do?

^^Answers
Develop and evaluate options -My option is to whether to help him or say no. If i help him, i will be doing wrong, as i am not being honest. If i don't help him, he will not like to cooperate with me with work. I choose not to do this.

Review your decision - I think i am not doing something wrong by saying no. It is just not right to cover up for him if it's not right.
