Unusable Financial Statements
Malissa is an accountant. Sometimes printouts of financial statements have errors and are not usable. Malissa doesn't like to waste anything, so she takes the unusable financial statements to her son's day care center to use for drawing paper. Explain why you think this is or is not unethical behavior
Unethical from a couple of points of view.
1. Her company might view this as theft of the paper.
2. The printouts may contain personal/private information such as addresses, names and account information. The print outs might contain company information, e.g. on their trading position.
